First it was free hairstyles by a Fall River salon, now a local florist is generously offering free flowers to foster children for prom.
Rustic Rose Floral Designs in Westport has issued the following statement via social media.
“Why are we doing this?? When your Dad has you pulling a cloth-a-child card from a pile he’s put on the Thanksgiving table at 16 you kind of grow up making sure you’re giving back. As a parent of a high schooler I understand that prom season is a large mix of anticipation and dread. That the social pressures of making the dance a night to remember is a stressful and costly endeavor. We just realized we can do this one little thing, on this one big night, for a bunch of teenagers that are so much more than just foster kids. On a night like the prom they should have great fitting suits, glamorous gowns, fresh haircuts, fancy updo’s and beautiful flowers. So, we’re bringing the flowers.
