The Coronavirus has created many obstacles in the way we live and work, and with so many changes, it can feel like a dark time. But one local business owner decided to find the light in these times, and is spreading cheer to others.
When Debbie Arnsparger was forced to close her flower shop due to the Coronavirus outbreak, she felt devastated. It didn’t take her long to discover that she could easily bring cheer to those who need it during this time with the thing she knows best…flowers. With so many shipments of flowers coming in, but so many events being canceled – Debbie refused to throw her flowers away. She delivered over 65 bouquets of flowers to first responders, firefighters and nurses. “We’re all going about our isolation, our shutdowns – our you know keep our distancing and things like like that – but there are people out there that can’t and it does bring tears to my eyes – sorry. You know we’ve got nurses out there we’ve got the police man – we’ve got the firemen.” Debbie says she didn’t do this for the reaction, but after receiving so many great responses – she knew this is exactly what she was supposed to do.
