Since it won’t be a traditional Mothers Day this year due to the coronavirus pandemic , Lowe’s is partnering with growers and Uber to deliver $1 million worth of flowers on this holiday.
The baskets will be delivered to 500 long-term care and senior living facilities to cities who were hit the hardest including New York, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, Houston and Miami.
Each basket will be wrapped individually and include a special note of appreciation according to the company. They will be given both to moms and grandmothers.
"Mother's Day is a special time of celebration between mothers, grandmothers and their children, and our hearts go out to the millions of families nationwide who won't be able to be with their loved ones this year," said Marisa Thalberg, Lowe's executive vice president, chief brand and marketing officer
Uber drivers will be delivering the flower baskets in some of the markets, according to the company.
"We hope that these flower deliveries, made possible by our network of local nurseries will bring a spark of joy to the moms and grandmothers in senior housing who may feel alone this Mother's Day," Thalberg added.
