Flower arrangements delivered to seniors in Red Bluff – Red Bluff Daily News
RED BLUFF — Thanks to the generosity of local residents, Christmas cheer arrangements were delivered this week to more than 400 residents of local healthcare facilities.
The Christmas holidays will be a little different this year, especially for people in long-term care, said Dave Gowan, CEO of the Red Bluff-Tehama County Chamber of Commerce. But many have donated to make this holiday season brighter.
The chamber, in partnership with Tehama Floral, is giving each resident of six local healthcare facilities in Red Bluff a special floral arrangement this Christmas season to show them they are not forgotten.
“We were looking for sponsors to partner with us to send these arrangements to a total of over 300 residents,” Gowan said. “But thanks to the tremendous generosity of locals, we are able to expand it to over 400 people this year.”
The Paskenta Band of Nomlaki Indians gave big to spread Christmas cheer, bearing the cost of 300 arrangements.
“Thanks to this unexpected blessing, we are able to expand this year to palliative care, emergency, meals on wheels throughout Tehama County, hospital, clinics and small assisted living facilities in the county” , said Gowan.
Haley Ray, owner of Tehama Floral, said the impact on residents in 2020 and this year has been an incredible encouragement to them.
Arrangements carry a Merry Christmas tag with the name of the business, family or organization that made the donation.
