Memorial Day Flowers

Under the #MayeshGivesBack initiative, it is important that Mayesh doesn’t just sell flowers, but that we take the extra step for our community as well. This is where Memorial Day Flowers comes in. For the third year in a row, Mayesh has teamed up with the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation to celebrate the men and women who have served our country and are no longer with us by donating over 5,000 roses nationwide.  To get thousands of flowers to 23 customers across the country, it takes many special partners.  Our efforts could not be possible without Memorial Day Flowers Foundation, Greeenrose & Agronatura (amazing & generous rose growers), UPS, and our customers.

Our customers will be handing out the roses at local cemeteries, Memorial Day events, parades and more.  Be sure to check back soon, as we will post some of the wonderful stories that will surely happen because of this movement.

Memorial Day Flowers Foundation’s mission has a reach much greater than the work accomplished with Mayesh.  In fact, the foundation’s centerpiece is their efforts at Arlington National Cemetery, where over 120,000 roses will be distributed to be placed on headstones.  In addition, the foundation works with wholesalers similar to Mayesh and other organizations – that is another approximately 35,000 roses to help honor our fallen soldiers!  For more information on the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation, you can visit www.memorialdayflowers.org.
