Floral Deliveries

RAF delivers roughly 500 bouquets a week to people in area hospitals and nursing homes. Bouquets are packed into carts, which are then loaded into an RAF vans via an electronic lift. A volunteer is needed to help secure carts in the van and deliver carts to healthcare facilities. A group of RAF delivery volunteers will meet at the facility and help unload.
