Hospice Of Chattanooga Patients To Receive ‘Petals Of Hope’

Thursday, May 9, 2019

Hospice of Chattanooga seeks Chattanooga and North Georgia area florists and grocery store partners to donate flowers for “Petals of Hope,” a new patient support program being launched this spring.

"It brings such joy to our patients to have fresh flowers in their room. It means a lot to be able to share such life, beauty and love with them. Our hope is that these fresh flowers will be a daily source of joy, encouragement and a reminder of the blessings of life,” said Janet Sievers, volunteer coordinator for Hospice of Chattanooga.

Volunteers will arrange the flowers in plastic Petals of Hope vases that will be distributed to patients and families.

“We look forward to partnering with local florists and volunteers to support our patients with Petals of Hope. It is one of the many new volunteer programs Hospice of Chattanooga is debuting this year, along with Music, Pet, Art and Heart to Heart Touch. If you or someone you know who would like to become part of these wonderful volunteer-driven initiatives, please reach out to our team and let’s connect these talented people with our programs. What a difference we can make in the community while we care for people who are facing their end-of-life journeys along with their loved ones,” said Tracy L. Wood, president and CEO of Hospice of Chattanooga.

This 21 age requirement would not include ammunition ... (click for more)
