ProMedica Hospice Receives Flower Donation from Local Garden Club
Lori, volunteer coordinator at ProMedica Hospice Serving Greater Reading, tells about a recent donation the hospice team received for their patients from the Garden Club of Reading:
“The Garden Club of Reading held a special meeting this month to create and donate more than 50 silk flower arrangements for ProMedica Hospice patients. The club’s new president first reached out to me in March. She had heard about our request for holiday decorations last December and was looking for a service project for her group. Another club member took the lead in organizing and kept in-touch with us regularly to fine-tune the project.
No new materials were purchased for these arrangements. The Garden Club members donated their left-over supplies from previous projects and decorated soup cans and other containers as the bases. They also made sure that all arrangements were sturdy and non-breakable. They created and attached tags to each arrangement stating: A gift from ProMedica Hospice and The Garden Club of Reading.”
