Meals on Wheels, Bloom Project deliver holiday centerpieces to seniors

Posted: Updated:

A local non-profit teamed up with Meals on Wheels to provide a little extra Christmas cheer for seniors this holiday season.

The Bloom Project delivers more than 2,500 festive holiday centerpieces to homebound seniors around Portland.

Volunteers delivered flowers to seniors in Multnomah Village Monday morning. The non-profit Meals on Wheels provided transportation for the flowers.

Organizers say the event goes beyond just delivering festive wreaths.

"We get a lot of pleasure and satisfaction in knowing that they are touching the lives of somebody they will never meet to give Christmas greens or flowers, that really brings something special to that senior that is spending time alone," said Heidi Berkman with The Bloom Project.

This is the third year The Bloom Project has been in Portland. Flowers were provided by Teufel Holly Farms.
