Planning a florist to help bring smiles back to care home residents | New


A local business plans to bring smiles to hundreds of Greenville residents this month.

Greenville Floral & Gifts will once again join thousands of local Teleflora Member florists nationwide in celebrating the 21st Annual Make Someone Smile Week, delivering surprise bouquets to deserving recipients in Greenville.

From Monday, July 18 through Sunday, July 24, Greenville Floral & Gift will help prepare and deliver handmade Be Happy bouquets.

“This will be our 8th year,” said Luanne Holloway Dickens, owner of Greenville Floral & Gifts. “We plan to distribute 520 cups to local retirement homes. I can’t wait to see all the smiles,”

During Make Someone Smile Week, handmade and hand-delivered floral arrangements will be offered to those who need a smile the most, especially residents of nursing homes.

Make Someone Smile Week was developed by Teleflora in 2000 and is the flower industry’s most successful volunteer initiative in North America, having donated over 600,000 Be Happy cups.

Each year, Make Someone Smile Week spans more than 100 facilities across the United States and Canada, led by florists who volunteer their time to deliver more than 15,000 bouquets and smiles.

Those who wish to participate can share the spirit of bringing a smile to someone in need by purchasing a Teleflora bouquet at
