Donate Vases to Random Acts of Flowers

Donate Vases to Random Acts of Flowers

Do you have extra vases around your home and feel guilty about throwing them out? Donate vases made of glass, ceramic, plastic, etc. – or any container that holds fresh-cut flowers and water. Ideal vases are between 6-9 inches tall with a 3.5-inch opening. Mason jars are great too! Please wash before donating. Do not donate: containers with drainage, candleholders, bud vases, mugs, bowls, or baskets.

How to donate: Drop off your vases/containers at the rolling cart in the parish narthex between now and January 20.  We will then donate these vases to Random Acts of Flowers Indianapolis. This organization uses donated flowers and vases to create bouquets which are then delivered to people in healthcare facilities who might otherwise never receive a visitor.

Want to do more? Complete the yellow Connect Card in Sunday’s bulletin to receive details about participating in an RLC group service day at Random Acts of Flowers. This opportunity would be 2-3 hours during a weekday and jobs would range from vase prep to flower arranging.

Questions? Contact Julie Jessee or the parish office at at parishadmin@rlcindy.org or (317) 881-7854.

More about Random Acts of Flowers

Random Acts of Flowers uses donated flowers and vases to create bouquets that are delivered to people in healthcare facilities (hospitals, assisted living, nursing homes, and hospice) that might otherwise never receive a visitor.

Random Acts of Flowers’ mission is to bring moments of kindness in the form of a beautiful floral bouquet. The recipients’ joy is enough to justify their work, but these deliveries have also been clinically proven to have a positive effect on health and well-being. They strive to recycle 100 percent of the arrangements received, from ribbons, wire and foam, to vases and flowers. The organization is dedicated to keeping floral materials out of the landfills. At the conclusion of Random Acts of Flowers’ recycling and repurposing efforts, the most important thing happens: a patient in an area healthcare facility is delivered a bouquet of flowers and offered encouragement, support and a moment of kindness and compassion.
