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 Whole Foods and Trader Joes) to terminally ill hospice patients, many of whom have no family or friends. Our patients are located from East Palo Alto to Pacifica,m San Mateo county, and San Francisco County. We will make sure to assign you someone near your preferred area of delivery.
Pick up is Monday -Wednesday, in San Mateo 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.
WE RESPECTFULLY ONLY ASK FOR SERIOUS VOLUNTEER APPLICATNTS. APPLICATION PROCESS CAN BE LENGTHY AND WE WANT TO MAKE SURE OUR TIME AWAY FROM PATIENT CARE IS TO ENSURE MORE VISITS WITH PATIENTS IN THE LONG RUN.
