The cold, rainy weather of this weekend really reminded me how much we all need to appreciate this sun and soft breeze before winter comes. I want to also re thank all the volunteers who came out this past Saturday with Flower City Pickers to collect and sort at Rochester Public Market despite the cold rain and wind. THANK YOU ALL. This group is dependent on the hearts and values of our volunteers and you are so needed and much appreciated! I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you and each and every coordinator and returning volunteers who welcome new volunteers and make what we are doing so remarkable. Especially, when I get overwhelmed and in a daze. I feel like we are building a true community, a true culture where we help each other out and welcome all with open arms. Thank you all for sticking it through and helping us create value with each day <3 YOU really do make the difference!
Rain or shine Flower City Pickers will be collecting donations at the Rochester Public Market District! We will be helping fill 100 grocery bags today (in addition to benefiting shelters) for a Wellness Fair. This is the first time this event has ever been able to include FRESH PRODUCE in their bags! How cool is that? Come be part of it today starting at 1pm <3
