A flower shop in New Glasgow, N.S., brightened the day of dozens of workers at the Aberdeen Hospital on Friday by donating more than 80 bouquets.
McKean's Flowers Ltd., a third-generation family business that has been around for more than 70 years, made the decision to temporarily close its doors this week as a precaution to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"As a small business, we've been racking our brains at how can we help," said Suzanne Makin, one of the owners.
"We see so many other small businesses and large businesses being able to adapt what they're doing to help, whether it's retooling machinery to make items that are needed or installing Plexiglas to keep our grocery store workers safe.
"We're a flower and gift shop — what could we possibly do to help? And then it dawned on us — we've got a whole fridge full of happiness."
