1-800-FLOWERS Phoenix Pledges to Feed 1,000 Needy People This Holiday

December 18, 2008

1-800-FLOWERS Stores in Phoenix have pledged to make a difference in the lives of needy families this holiday by raising donations to purchase meals for the Phoenix Rescue Mission. They will be matching customer donations, up to 500 meals, from December 17th-24th and will have five meals donated to the Mission for every customer purchasing a large Classic Christmas™ Centerpiece (pictured above).

“This is a busy time of year for our business and we have been very blessed. We are committed to making a difference and have challenged our employees to raise enough funds to feed 1,000 needy people this holiday,” said Cheryl Denham owner of the local 1-800-FLOWERS retail stores.

Phoenix Rescue Mission serves three hot meals a day, 365 days a year, to anyone that is hungry. These nutritious, 2,000 calorie meals cost roughly $1.92 each. The Mission also provides emergency food boxes to families struggling to make ends meet.

“We will serve thousands of homeless and hurting people in the next two months. The holidays are a difficult time for many of our clients. Many are estranged from their families and memories of happier times can sadden the hardest of hearts,” said Jerry Sandvig, Executive Director of the Mission. “This amazing gift from 1-800-FLOWERS Phoenix will bring joy to many at Christmas.”

To make a donation or purchase a Classic Christmas™ Centerpiece please call or visit any of the local 1-800-FLOWERS Phoenix Retail Stores. For more information on store locations visit www.1800flowersphoenix.com or call 602-507-4200.
