Boynton flower shop donating to nursing homes and hospitals

A Boynton Beach flower shop is donating flower arrangements to nursing homes and hospitals.

Lasting Impressions Florist has closed due to COVID-19, but the store wanted to share some happiness with others who might be alone or need some cheering up.

Owner Megan Kelly said they didn’t want to just throw their flowers away.

“Everyone is kind of alone, and we are looking at all of our product and we are going to have to throw all of this out because we don’t have the customers,” said Kelly.

The shop donated to two nursing homes on Thursday.

Barrington Terrace said the flowers looked beautiful in their library for everyone to enjoy.

Kelly said both places were excited when they dropped off the donations.

The shop would like to donate more flowers to nursing homes or people who are in the hospital.

The shop can be contacted at 561-708-1745.

Earlier this month, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis banned nursing homes from accepting visitors for 30 days except when a patient is near death in an effort to prevent the spread of the virus.
