Flower Business

Nothing says spring quite like flowers and there is no better way to get flowers than by having them delivered each week by participants in Arc Community Service’s Supportive Community Options (SCOP) Day Program. Yes, the Flower Delivery business is back and in full swing.

Individuals in the SCOP program are involved in a variety of work and leisure experiences each day. One of the most popular activities is the operation of the program’s Flower Business, operated by the individuals with assistance from staff as needed.  Each Tuesday morning, fresh flowers are delivered and program participants arrange them in bud vases, plan a route and deliver the flowers to customers.

We offer five, five week sessions of flower deliveries, starting in March and going through October; specific dates can be found on the order form.  Individuals and/or businesses can order a 5-week series of flowers to be delivered each Tuesday for the very reasonable cost of $35.00 per 5-week session. To keep the cost as low as possible, we do ask that you return vase from prior delivery each week. Order for a friend, a family member, your office staff, or for yourself. Currently, flowers can be delivered to Fitchburg, Leominster and many surrounding towns. Call to see if we deliver to YOUR town! For more information, please call Mary C at 978-343-6662, ext. 111. There is also an order form attached here for your convenience.

Please support this business; it is important on many levels. SCOP participants benefit from being active members of their community, increased self-esteem that comes from operating a flower business, and they earn money. They also love working with flowers and especially love delivering the flowers and watching customer’s faces light up as they receive them. Receiving flowers is a wonderful pick-me-up. In this case, I’m not sure who enjoys it more – the flower recipients or the individuals in the SCOP program.
