Make a Difference in Your San Diego Community

There are always opportunities to contribute to your local community and get involved in community events and fundraisers. However, Make a Difference Day on October 21st is a good way to get motivated to stop what you are doing and go help someone else through volunteering or contributing in a financial way. Throughout San Diego, there are events on Make a Difference Day as well as over the coming days after the day like planting trees in Chula Vista or participating in a 5K run where you can give your time or money to better someone else’s lives plus just enhance the community where you live or work. Throughout the course of our existence as a family-owned flower shop in San Diego, we have contributed to charities and participated in numerous events as well as encouraged our customers to do the same. For many years, we have also offered the Helping Hands program, which is an easy way for our customer to get involved and help a local charity with every purchase they make through our online flower shop. The program helps numerous schools, churches, and non-profit organizations in La Mesa County, such as Emerald Middle School PTSA, Solana Highlands

It’s also an opportune time to spread awareness to encourage more proactive behaviors like more mammograms and to help raise money for ongoing research. There are a number of events during the month of October here in San Diego that are focused on raising awareness of breast cancer. We are proud to supply fresh flowers for many of these events and are available to decorate your event as well. We also have a wide array of pink flower arrangements and pink bouquets that make great gift ideas for someone who has fought and won their battle against breast cancer or even someone who may be fighting it right now.
