Marion florist to give away 833 dozen free flowers for FTD Good Neighbor Day | Community Spirit
MARION, IL (KFVS) - The 18th annual FTD Good Neighbor Day will be Wednesday, September 5 starting at 8:30 a.m.
We 3 Girls Flowers will host the event and give away 9,986 flowers in bunches of a dozen free to anyone who visits the shop, while supplies last. One catch, is that Brenda, the owner of the shop asks that anyone who picks up a dozen free flowers keep one of the flowers for themselves and give the others away to 11 different people, spreading goodwill and friendship in the community.
"We hope that the people of Marion and Carrier Mills will be able to get acquainted with new people or will renew an old friendship during FTD Good Neighbor Day," Brenda said. "We hope to help create a friendlier, more caring and compassionate world, starting right here in Marion."
FTD Good Neighbor Day is being celebrated for the 18th year throughout the United States and Canada at participating floral shops as a day of celebrating goodwill toward all people.
The We 3 Girls Flowers is located at 509 West DeYoung Street in Marion and 7211 U.S. Hwy. 45 in Carrier Mills.
