Root River Floral celebrates Caring Rose Week

“Holidays, happiness, family… hunger?”

Next week, we’ll all sidle up to the table, give thanks for our blessings, and dive in. In the midst of so much, it’s possible to forget that there are those not so fortunate. This week, National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week, one local florist is giving thanks early and giving back.

November 18-23, Root River Floral, in Rushford, Minn., will partner with the supplier North American Wholesale Florist for the 15th annual Caring Rose Week, “Calling attention to those who cannot share Thanksgiving as we do.” Each time a customer brings in two non-perishable food items, they can purchase a dozen, long-stemmed, loose roses for just $10. Not only will customers get a great deal on a bouquet, but they will be supporting the SEMCAC Food Shelf, also in Rushford, at a time when it’s most needed.

“By week’s end of this promotion, thousands of cans of food will be delivered to charitable organizations through local florists,” says Cindy Thesing, owner of Root River Floral. Florists participating in Caring Rose Week will gather nearly 40 tons of food for those in need. “The food donated in our area will go to the local food shelf and be distributed to those in need in our community. This is our way of giving back to the community that has supported our new business.”

“Caring Rose Week is food that will warm homes and hearts throughout the upcoming holiday season,” Thesing adds. “Remember to bring home some flowers for your holiday gatherings!”

Root River Floral is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Wednesday 10 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. - noon. To place orders, call Cindy at 507-864-2381 or stop in at 30410 State Highway 43, Rushford.
