RESPONSE TO COVID-19
At BloomAgainBklyn, we're committed to helping the senior health care centers, home bound seniors, trauma and homeless survivors affected by COVID-19. Below are details on how we've re-directed our energies and resources from working with flowers to other ways of connecting with our community partners.
HOW WE'RE HELPING
With enthusiastic support from our loyal volunteers and through floral partnerships with Opalia Flowers and STEMS, BloomAgainBklyn is delivering much needed resources and support to the administrative staff and populations served by our various community partners including Cobble Hill Health Center, Congregational Nursing Home, Little Brothers, Heights and Hills, YWCA and Sisters with Purpose.
200 beautiful floral collages printed by our dedicated volunteer, Jackie Shaldjian, were distributed to partner organizations, homebound seniors and to those in the community who were picking up bags at the food bank in East New York.
Under the guidance of Julia Rassman, Minister to Children and Families at Plymouth Church, and BloomAgainBklyn volunteer Elaine Diaz, colorful cards were drawn, painted and artfully created by the children at Plymouth Church to help brighten up the windows and bring a little cheer to the seniors at Heights and Hills and Cobble Hill.
As part of the Zoom Connect planning sessions with our volunteers, BloomAgainBklyn tapped into our community resources and partners to create new ways to escape the self-isolation and explore the world through the beauty of flowers. Below are a few of our past and ongoing Zoom workshops.
Here are more ways BloomAgainBklyn is working to protect and support our senior community:
