Celebrating Mother’s Day usually includes going out to brunch with children, and lots of hugs, and gifts. But this year is far from ordinary and family visits and outings aren’t possible in areas of the US that were hard-hit by the coronavirus. That’s why Lowe’s Home Improvement and Uber partnered to deliver Mother’s Day flower baskets to celebrate moms around the country.

The deliveries began in the days leading up the May 10 holiday to senior mothers and grandmothers living in 500 long-term care residents of locked-down facilities in New York, Seattle, Miami, Chicago, Boston, and other cities that were impacted by the pandemic according to a Lowe’s press release.

Social distancing rules do not allow visits to senior facilities because of the higher risk to elderly people. Lowe’s is hoping that these blooms will help cheer-up the residents on this holiday.

"Mother's Day is a special time of celebration between mothers, grandmothers,  and their children, and our hearts go out to the millions of families nationwide who won't be able to be with their loved ones this year," said Marisa Thalberg, Lowe's executive vice president, chief brand and marketing officer in the press release.

"We hope that these flower deliveries, made possible by our network of local nurseries will bring a spark of joy to the moms and grandmothers in senior housing who may feel alone this Mother's Day, " Thalberg said.

The baskets were sourced from local nurseries and growers that supply the DIY home improvement company’s garden centers around the country and were delivered by Uber drivers who have also been impacted by the pandemic.

The colorful flower baskets were individually wrapped and included a special note of appreciation for the moms according to CNN.

One of the moms who received a flower basket is Ms. Louise who is a greeter in the Charlotte, North Carolina store but is on lock-down in her senior residence. The company wrote on their Facebook page: “That’s why a surprise flower delivery to Ms. Louise was so special to us. She makes sure every person who enters Lowe’s feels seen and appreciated, and the least we could do was make Ms. Louise feel the same this Mother’s Day.”

This initiative is just part of a $250 million commitment from Lowe’s to coronavirus relief including funds to support small businesses and payments for laid-off workers.

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, kind-hearted people, nonprofit organizations, and companies have been helping to provide relief and comfort to the people who are impacted the most.  Besides providing food and material aid, lifting the spirits of people and bring them hope is something to celebrate.
