OMEGA Spotlight-Gritt's Midway Greenhouse
Thursday, March 19, 2020
This week OMEGA Spotlight would like to highlight Gritt’s Midway Greenhouse in Red House, West Virginia. Gritt’s Midway Greenhouse has been an OMEGA merchant for two years. They were nominated by Sarah in our customer service department. She nominated them after she learned what they were doing to help spread some spring cheer during these uncertain times.
Gritt’s Midway Greenhouse recently launched a program called ‘Send a Smile to a Senior’. Below is a little more information about the program (taken from their Facebook page).
Like so many other small businesses, Gritt’s Midway Greenhouse is feeling the effects of COVID-19. During the Easter season, we typically supply thousands of tulips, hyacinths, and Easter Lilies to area churches. As you’re probably aware, most – if not all - churches have decided to cancel Easter Worship Services to help prevent the spread of this virus. We fully support them in their decision to take this seriously. But now we must try to figure out how to move these flowers, which got us thinking.
We’ve been seeing that senior and assisted care facilities were forced to prohibit any outside visitors, which we understand must be difficult for those staying in the facilities not to see their families. So we contacted the local Genesis Health facilities in our area. Their two locations in Teays Valley have a total of 241 seniors. We’re offering an opportunity for the community to “Send a Smile to a Senior”. For $6.50, you can choose to send a Tulip, Hyacinth, or Easter Lilies to these centers. Each flower will be in a colorful pot cover with a card with each donors name on it and be delivered the first week of April.
We would love to get enough orders to send a flower to every person in these facilities. If we get more than that, we’ll contact more facilities. The goal is to positively impact as many as we can. With your support, you’ll not only be doing something positive for them, you’ll be helping us as well.
To Send a Smile to a Senior, go to https://www.gritts.com/product-page/send-a-smile-to-a-senior when checking out enter your shipping but know that the flowers won’t come to you but will be delivered on your behalf!
Or to order over the phone call our office to purchase at 304-586-2449. Office hours are from 8AM-5PM
We LOVE hearing stories like this! Let us know what your company is doing during this time to help spread cheer to the community and we’ll highlight you in the next OMEGA Spotlight. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your stories.
Keep up the good work Gritt’s!
