WILLIAMSBURG – A local florist has surprised dozens of community residents with bouquets of flowers as part of a nationwide campaign to spread joy.

Located at 1303 Jamestown Rd. In Williamsburg, Morrison’s Flowers and Gifts participated in Teleflora’s annual Make Someone Smile Week July 18-24, according to a press release from Morrison’s.

Teleflora is headquartered in Los Angeles and connects customers with a network of florists to facilitate flower deliveries.

40 Morrison volunteers prepared 96 Be Happy bouquets for delivery to residents of the retirement homes and emergency first responders in Edgeworth Park, Williamsburg Landing, Riverside Hospital and Brookdale. Flowers and supplies for the bouquets were donated by DVFlora, KD & Company and FloraMax Wholesale.

“The annual Make Someone Smile initiative gives our boutique and other volunteers the opportunity to give back to deserving local beneficiaries in the greater Williamsburg community,” said Arlene Aitken-Williams, owner of Morrison’s Flowers & Gifts. “It’s heartwarming and gratifying to see so many people come together to work on the cups and then to see the recipients receiving them.”

Teleflora launched Make Someone Smile Week in 2000, and the charity event includes growers, flower wholesalers, and family-owned stores across the country.
