Staff and volunteers from Niagara Hospice are gearing up for the 2020 spring bouquet sale. The sale will run March 2-8 with pre-sale bouquets being ordered throughout the month of February.

Niagara Hospice event coordinator Allison Bolt said, “It’s great to be thinking spring as we work with the community on getting this event together and spreading some beautiful spring blooms throughout Niagara County in early March.”

In 2019, the sale raised over $30,000 to support hospice care in Niagara County.

“We want to keep this momentum going and growing! We are seeking more Niagara County businesses and organizations to participate in our walk-up sale the week of March 2,” Bolt said.

Bouquets sell for $8 each. There is no cost to any organization to participate.

“We look forward to this sale each year and it’s a great way to get the whole Niagara County community involved to raise awareness about hospice services,” Bolt said.

Volunteers are an integral part of the sale, from preparing materials, to selling at community walk-up locations, to making the bouquet deliveries to businesses, schools and churches. Those are interested in volunteering for a couple of hours, one day during the sale or more, can contact Bolt at 280-0766 or visit www.NiagaraHospice.org for more information.

Niagara Hospice raises funds to help offset costs for individuals who are under or uninsured. Gifts made to Niagara Hospice help provide end-of-life care to Niagara County residents. For more information, visit www.NiagaraHospice.org or call 716-439-4417.
