LOVE FOR REPEAT ROSES

Some of our hospice patients have very involved families. Other hospice patients only have us, their hospice care team—nurses, doctors, social workers, chaplains, creative arts therapists, volunteers. When Repeat Roses brings vases filled with gorgeous flowers, all of our patient suites receive that extra special beautiful touch, all of our patients feel extra special and every single person’s smile is so much brighter. The looks of joy are unforgettable.

The bouquets we receive add touches of beauty to the rooms at our shelter and bring a spirit of joy into the lives of the homeless women we serve. The generosity and creativity of Repeat Roses brings healing and hope to women facing a very difficult time in their life and brightens the day for staff members as well. Making sure that we save the flowers for composting has helped to raise awareness among staff and residents about the value of repurposing and recycling.

We love the staff’s vision, enthusiasm, and commitment to sustainability that cares for our Earth’s resources and brings joy into the lives of the many people served by the nonprofit organizations that receive the remade bouquets.

The deliveries and pick-ups are always well organized. The bins left behind make it easy to collect the vases and save the flowers for composting. It is an easy process which brings us so much beauty and delight. We also appreciate being able to send a letter of appreciation to the original donors who shared the beauty of their special event with us.

Covenant House California is a nonprofit youth homeless shelter that provides sanctuary and support for homeless and trafficked youth, ages 18-24. We desire to bring light into their lives in as many ways as possible, and Repeat Roses helps us do just that! The Repeat Roses team is a joy to work with and they take care of all the logistics! We are truly grateful for the hearts of the Repeat Roses staff who spread light from one place to another. This organization has shown love to several Covenant Houses across the United States—what a neat picture of community!

As lovely as the flowers looked at our event space, they looked even more lovely at the Ronald McDonald House where they were admired by the families there. Something as beautiful as fresh flowers should be shared with as many people as possible, especially when it is bringing just a little bit of joy and delight to those going through hard times.

Thank you very much for the beautiful bouquets!! They made our Emergency Shelter for Teenagers feel more like a home and brought a lot of cheer to our young moms in the Assisting Young Mothers program. They also stayed fresh for a very long time and really brightened up the rooms!

Many of you know that I am a former florist and I can tell you that it used to drive me and my associates crazy to know that our beautiful creations would most likely end up in the trash in a few hours.

I can also speak as a mother of the bride and a mother of the groom when I say what a great service Repeat Roses is providing. After a big event families want to do something with the flowers, but are too exhausted to organize what Repeat Roses has in place. They take care of containers, redesigns and delivery!

I had the opportunity to see all of the flowers and they were beautiful. The staff said that the patients were so grateful to receive them. There was even a small arrangement where the security officer sits and he was so touched by the flowers. We can’t thank you enough for this thoughtful gesture.
