Well, it's been a heck of a week and for us here at Monday Morning Flowers, we've come through it better than most. Our Yardley shop is still without power today but in Princeton we are up and running and creating beautiful floral designs for this weekends 4 weddings. To say we are relieved is an understatement. Most of our employees have power back on at home except Drivers Allan and Jeff but we are hopeful that soon their houses will be warm and they can take hot showers.
In trying to do our part, we have decided to make lapel pins and ask for donations for the American Red Cross to benefit the Hurricane Sandy victims in our area. The last time we did a fundraiser like this was the weeks following 9/11 and we raised over $3,600 for the Red Cross. I'll never forget their faces when we walked into their offices on Alexander Road here in Princeton, NJ with all that cash.
For now we have lapel pin donation boxes at Bon Appetit and our store here in the Princeton Forrestal Village. If you are in the area and can spare any amount of cash, we'd love for you to show your support for those who have lost so much.
