Donations bring spring to hospital
(The Greenfield Daily Reporter, 3.2.2017)
The cheerful riot of flower petals spilling out of Cynthia Fincher’s car was only rivaled by the sweet perfume of the arrangements drawing stares from visitors to Hancock Regional Hospital.
Fincher, a volunteer for the Hancock Regional Hospital Guild, brought 40 flower arrangements from Random Acts of Flowers, an Indianapolis organization that collects flowers from florists, grocery stores, events and even funerals and has volunteers re-arrange them into bouquets that are donated to Indianapolis-area hospital patients.
The Greenfield resident had been looking for a way to volunteer for the hospital that was in her “wheelhouse,” she said. When she heard about Random Acts of Flowers, the hospital’s volunteer coordinator Dawn Earlywine thought it fit in with Circle of Kindness, a recent initiative to promote acts of kindness by hospital staff.
