Bloom Works Floral found themselves with an abundance of unused flowers in the shop. They didn’t want them to go to waste and graciously decided to deliver the unused flowers to healthcare professionals and patients in Council Bluffs.


They went to Jennie Edmundson and CHI Hospitals with notes that said: “A special thank you for everything that you are doing during this crazy time, hope this brings a smile to your face.” The flowers were distributed to hospital staff and patients.


A big thank you to Bloom Works for seeing the need to make people smile and doing just that! We all know that flowers are a great way to brighten your mood, especially while we are patiently waiting for the flowers in our yards to start blooming.
