Our old van has been a trooper, but it has hundreds of thousands of miles on it and is held together in some places with a little bit of duct tape and a whole lot of hope. This van has been with us since the beginning and has carried flowers to more than 100,000 recipients. It's on its last legs, and to replace it, we need your help!

Without a reliable delivery van, our mission will grind to a halt.

Week after week, month after month, for the past decade, we have had the privilege to witness the impact of our mission at Random Acts of Flowers Knoxville – replacing anxiety, pain, fear, and isolation with hope, encouragement, recognition and the reminder that no one is alone.

Our process is simple. We re-purpose flowers that have served their intended purpose or are no longer sale-able. Using only the freshest flowers, dedicated volunteers create new arrangements which are then delivered to those most in need of an emotional boost and a kind visitor. This visit – this personal moment of kindness and compassion – is our mission. The flowers are the vessel to this moment as well as a lasting reminder that someone cares.

Recently, Marie made the difficult decision to move her husband and herself into an assisted living facility due to his worsening Alzheimer’s.

“In our first month there, your organization delivered flowers to his room. He was so happy to receive them,” Marie shared in a hand-written note. But even more than the immediate sense of joy, the gift from Random Acts of Flowers had a longer lasting effect. “Now after breakfast everyday he goes out to the garden and picks flowers. He has roses, tulips, and greenery to place in the vase in his room. He never would have done this without receiving flowers from your organization.”
