Last month, 1-800-Flowers.com employees warmed the hearts of the residents of the Somerset Gardens Assisted Living Facility in Plainview.
As part of their community outreach initiative and Summer of a Million Smiles campaign, a Smile Team spent the afternoon with the residents of the facility. Upon arrival, the team set up a table for 1-800-Flowers.com’s expert floral designer, Phil DeVito, to create truly original arrangements. Phil showed the residents how to design a Happy Hour Bouquet, a Smile Bouquet, an a-DOG-able arrangement and a bouquet in a personalized Summer Smile Vase. The rest of the team handed out carnations to the residents and four lucky winners got to keep an arrangement. To wrap up the day the Smile Team played trivia games with the group.
Under the Summer of a Million Smiles initiative, the team at 1-800-Flowers.com participates in Smile Days, where employees give back to their local communities through volunteer work, such as visiting the Somerset Gardens Assisted Living Facility and delivering floral arrangements. Through its growing social networks, customers and employees alike are encouraged to share their smiles with images and stories as representations of Summer of a Million Smiles initiative.
