Make a Difference Day in Denver

Every year, service and volunteerism get a day to draw awareness to the need to help others. It is always the fourth Saturday of October, which means it is nearly here as it lands on October 28th this year. Numerous events and projects are planned for Make a Difference Day. Be sure to go to this website and put in your zip code to see how you can get involved. There are even projects for the kids to participate in so they can get their service heart beating at an early age. Our Denver flower shop can help you recognize those individuals and organizations that are truly making a difference in their communities by sending them some special flowers. Or, you can make a difference yourself by sending out flowers to someone you know is struggling to help change their outlook.
