About

Hello Potential Volunteer!

Help out with Silverado's Petals for Patient's Program on Mondays through Wednesdays.

We believe in the power of flowers, beauty and nature to heal the spirit and nourish the soul. We are always looking for more volunteers to help pick up and /or deliver fresh flowers (donated by Random Acts of Flowers) to terminally ill hospice patients, many of whom have no family or friends. Our patients are located from East Palo Alto to Pacifica and San Francisco County. We will make sure to assign you someone near your preferred area of delivery.

Pick up is Monday -Wednesday, in Menlo Park at between 12:30-4pm.

Delivery can be scheduled for anytime during the week but we do want to bring the freshest flowers to patients especially since donated flowers are recycled flowers

Our goal is to show our patient's that someone is thinking of them at a difficult and often lonely time. We recycle flowers donated by various stores and gardens and create beautiful arrangements. Flowers are delivered to each patient.
