ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- A group of Robbinsville community leaders came together over the Passover and Easter holidays to deliver spring flowers to senior citizens in an effort to being cheer to area residents unable to leave their homes as well as to support a local garden center businesses that are normally bustling this time of year.
The team partnered with Voorhees Greenhouse, Tony's Farm and Garden Center, PostNet Robbinsville, and the Robbinsville Senior Center to deliver 110 flowers to the residents of Rose Hill Assisted Living and other seniors citizens in Robbinsville. The flowers were paid for by the Cubberly Meadows neighborhood.
"It was a great opportunity to check up on many folks who have not had a great deal of in-person contact with friends and family in the past month." Councilman Dan Schuberth said adding this thanks to Robbinsville resident Lisa Malchione Temple for being the "inspiration" for the program.
Councilwoman Chris Ciaccio, Tony Ciaccio, and Shaina Rose Ciaccio -- the family who owns Tony's Farm and Garden Center -- helped organize the event with the help of Senior Center Director Renee Burns.
Robbinsville Board of Education members Rich Young and Jane Luciano along with Rachel Rivera and Natalie Rallis Schuberth served as the flower-delivery team.
