Free Memorial Day Flowers to be Given to Remember Wabash Valley Veterans

Terre Haute, IN – Every Memorial Day, many in our community visit local cemeteries to pay their respect to those who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice for our country in the United States Armed Forces. This year, Willow Gift & Home, a local gift shop located on the east side of Terre Haute, will be giving out 250 FREE long-stem roses to anyone who would like to place one on the grave of a veteran to honor his/her service and sacrifice. The flowers can be picked up at 3500 Hulman St, Terre Haute, IN 47803 on either Saturday, May 28th from 10am to 6pm or on Sunday, May 29th from 1pm to 5pm. Heather Wolf, the owner of Willow Gift & Home, is asking for your help to make sure that every one of the 250 roses finds a home on Memorial Day. All roses left after we close Willow on Sunday, at 5pm, will be placed in our local cemeteries by Willow team members on veterans’ graves. None will be forgotten. We make certain of that.

It’s a perfect opportunity for service groups, sports teams, Boys and Girls Scouts groups, and veterans groups to participate in this year’s Memorial Day celebration and remembrance of our American heroes. Please contact Willow Gift & Home at (812-917-2231) if you would like more information on the program.

Through The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation, not only will Willow Gift & Home have 250 flowers for local memorials, but their participation enables another 150 roses to be placed at Arlington National Cemetery on Memorial Day. Last year, in 2015, the volunteers and the MDF Foundation handed out 120,000 roses at Arlington National Cemetery.

The Memorial Day Flowers Foundation is a non-profit organization partnering with civic groups, florists, and retailers all over the United States to put long-stemmed roses on the graves of veterans for Memorial Day. They have been doing this since 2011 in Arlington National Cemetery and in hundreds of communities all across the country!

Willow Gift & Home thanks you for your commitment to honoring our Wabash Valley veterans and current service members.
