Wareham Healthcare residents receive floral baskets for Mother’s Day

May 6, 2020

Residents at Wareham Healthcare were treated to an unexpected gift on Tuesday, May 5. The healthcare facility was given over 150 “Happy Mother’s Day” floral baskets, courtesy of Lowe’s Home Improvement.

According to Activities Director Stephanie Wahlberg, “everyone, residents and staff, oohd and ahhd as we brought cartloads through the halls and placed them on residents' windowsills. Men and women alike loved choosing their flowers from almost every color of the rainbow.” 

Wahlberg said that on the following day she and one of Wareham Healthcare’s residents distributed the floral baskets throughout the facility, giving one to each resident.

She then went to the Wareham Lowe’s to personally thank manager Christopher Mullins for the kind donation.

“I made sure I thanked customer service and any other Lowe's employees I saw as well, and they each smiled with pride. Chris gave me a big smile as well and said they were more than happy to do it, especially at this time,” Wahlberg added. 

Wahlberg also bought shepherd hooks to hang baskets in residents’ rooms, which Lowe’s offered at a discounted price. 

Mullins said that he is proud of Lowe’s as a company because every store manager has been given a budget specifically for donations during this challenging time. He said that the Wareham Lowe’s has also donated sanitizer and cleaning supplies to firefighters during the pandemic.
