Random Acts of Flowers Vase Drive


Do you have unused flower vases hiding under your sink or stacked up in your basement? Feel guilty about tossing them out? Don’t! Donate them to Random Acts of Flowers (RAF) Chicago! Volunteers will wash them, fill them with flowers and deliver them to individuals in local healthcare facilities.

The Kipling Green Committee is conducting this vase drive to help Random Acts of Flowers.

Please bring your vases to:

· Kipling Office [Monday March 21-Thursday March 24th]

· Or drop them at the following homes where you can leave them in the collection box on the front porch:

o Sari London and Brian Wolkenberg: 490 Standish Dr. [Friday March 18- Thursday March 24th]

o Ruth and Bennett Brenner: 462 Longfellow [Friday March 18-noon Thursday March 24th]

o Adrea and Eric Lipp: 29 E St Andrews [Friday March 18- Thursday March 24th]

We will accept any glass, ceramic or plastic vase that holds fresh-cut flowers.

Thank you for your generous donation! Not only will your vase be saved from a landfill, but it will brighten the life of someone who needs a little cheer the most.

Random Acts of Flowers Chicago recycles and repurposes flowers by engaging dedicated volunteer teams to create and deliver beautiful bouquets and moments of kindness to individuals in healthcare facilities throughout our community. http://chicago.randomactsofflowers.org/
