Every day is a day to love and appreciate all that mothers do. Before Mother’s Day, which takes place on May 13, 1-800-Flowers.com hosted its annual Take Your Mom to Work Day event. This fun twist on Take Your Child to Work Day was created to celebrate the special role moms play in our lives.
Employees’ moms received a behind-the-scenes look at 1-800-Flowers.com and participated in a day of events including designing floral arrangements with one of the brand’s expert florists.
The moms then traveled to NYU Winthrop Hospital in Mineola, where they donated their handcrafted floral arrangements to 18 nurses from the hospital’s nursing staff—just ahead of Nurse Appreciation Week. Through this kind gesture, the moms were able to experience firsthand how 1-800-Flowers.com fulfills its mission to deliver smiles every day.
