Valentine’s Day is a holiday all about spreading love, and one Turlock florist did just that on Sunday by delivering flower grams to the local senior community.
Heidi Sisco of Heidi Hearts Flowers has made it a point to boost the spirits of those living in skilled nursing facilities and senior living homes throughout the pandemic, delivering beautiful floral grams with well wishes to remind them they haven’t been forgotten during this time of isolation. The idea began first with bouquets last year, then with poinsettias for Christmas when she delivered 500 of the beautiful flowers to the area’s elderly in December.
Sisco received an outpouring of support from people all over the United States for the poinsettia grams, thanks in part to a shoutout from country music superstar Kacey Musgraves, and knew she wanted to offer the service again for Valentine’s Day. She had been preparing for the event since December, she said, collecting enough donations to purchase thousands of flowers and deliver 405 floral arrangements to local organizations like Covenant Living of Turlock on Sunday.
