CPS Partnership to Bring Joy on Mother’s Day to Moms in Affordable Housing Communities
A unique partnership between CPS — the group purchasing agent behind the CHHSM Store — and Lowe’s will spread a little floral sunshine to mothers and grandmothers across the country who live in retirement communities and may be feeling isolated during the pandemic crisis.
Among the communities receiving flower baskets for residents will be several Retirement Housing Foundation (RHF) affordable housing communities. Deliveries will take place this week, between May 6 and 9.
After Lowe’s informed CPS that they were working with local growers to donate flower arrangements in several markets, CPS sent contact information to Lowe’s for the communities in those markets, “so that our isolated mothers and grandmothers could benefit from this donation” says Natalia Hernandez, CPS’ client account manager for CHHSM.
The arrangements will be delivered to the front entrances of the communities in order to avoid contact and ensure the safety of staff and residents, Hernandez adds.
Lowe’s wanted to “help and acknowledge isolated moms and grandmothers that couldn’t be with their families due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Hernandez says. “We were able to close the gap by donating the flower baskets to senior living communities while supporting small business growers.”
Among the RHF communities receiving baskets are Symphony Plaza East and Mason Place in Boston; Barrington Gardens in North Carolina; Mabel Meshack White Manor in Dallas; and Cornerstone Gardens Apartments, Creekbend Gardens, Northvale Village, and Sagetree Terrace in Houston.
“We hope that these beautiful arrangements will bring a smile to all the mothers living in our communities,” adds Hernandez. “This is a great example of partnership and support to our local communities on so many different levels. We are here for each other!”
