Special thanks and Friday cheer go out today to The Greater Cincinnati Health Council, which donated nine flower arrangements today to provide some springtime color here at the Center for Respite Care. We had enough for each client bedroom, the lobby, and offices. Flowers are a great example of the kind of unconventional donation that can really make a difference.
You might think that a nonprofit providing medical care to the homeless wouldn’t have a need for flowers, but that’s not true. To have something beautiful nearby is like a little sigh of relief at the end of a busy week. Our clients are working hard at pulling their lives back together, and staff members are busy helping them and keeping the Respite running, but we all appreciate having a chance to step back and smell the roses, as they say, if only for a moment.
Now, back to work!
