Salvation Army Kicks Off "Flowers Of Hope" Program

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
The Chattanooga Salvation Army is partnering with local Bi-Lo supermarkets to kick start the new ‘Flowers of Hope’ program. Volunteers will gather on Friday, July 25 at 8:30 a.m. at The Salvation Army Citadel Corps and Community Center, located at 1019 North More Rd., Chattanooga, TN 37411. Volunteers will create beautiful arrangements, write notes of encouragement and deliver the flowers to those who need uplifting.   

Every Friday, will be “Flower Day,” where Bi-Lo will donate flowers that will be created into floral arrangements. These arrangements will be beacons of hope for those in our community who need encouragement, such as those in nursing homes, homeless outreach facilities, hospitals and more. Volunteers will have the opportunity to brighten someone’s day by creating the arrangements and delivering them personally. 

“For 121 years, The Salvation Army has been providing hope to the hopeless in the Chattanooga area,” said Major Algerome Newsome, Salvation Army Area Commander. “The Flowers of Hope program provides one more opportunity so we can continue ‘doing the most good’ and bring hope to our community.” 

The Salvation Army needs volunteers to help on “Flower Days.” Businesses are welcome to donate flowers to the Flowers of Hope program.  For more information, contact Kimberly George at 756-1023 or Kimberly_George@uss.salvationarmy.org.
