“A few years ago we started a tradition called The Giving Tree in which we donated the proceeds from the sale of a specific ornament to local charities. The Giving Tree ornament for 2021 is a beautiful acrylic dove. We also have a festive red cardinal and acrylic snowflakes available while supplies last. Help us continue this wonderful tradition and raise money to support Open Arms Mission, Rose City Kids and Pathstone Mental Health. Giving tree ornaments are $6.99 each and are available for purchase both in-store and online.
If you are purchasing a floral arrangement or indoor mixed planter for someone special, consider having it gift-wrapped! The cost of gift-wrapping is $2 per item (no tax), but for the month of November all of the proceeds from our $2 giftwrapping charge will be donated to Gillian’s Place. Please note that we only gift-wrap using clear cellophane and ribbon. We do not have any wrapping paper or decorative bags. ” ~Vermeer’s Garden Centre via November 9, 2021 eNewsletter
