Secret donor sends flowers to retirement home residents

January 6, 2014

On Christmas Eve, a delightful delivery was made to a Winnipeg seniors' residence: a semi-truck full of fresh flowers. An anonymous donor sent the flowers, estimated to be worth more than $10,000, to Holy Family Home in the city's North End. The semi-trailer was packed floor-to-ceiling with boxes of flowers, including eight packages of two dozen roses each, hundreds of carnations and mini-roses and more than enough pre-made arrangements to ensure that each of the 276 residents could have their own.
