A group of South Florida law enforcement officers found a positive assessment
side to the cancellation of their big weekend event – donate flowers to
older people in their community.
Jupiter’s police department had its annual policeman
Ball stopped this weekend as part of an effort by government officials
to stop large gatherings. Instead of throwing away the fresh, official flowers
he went around the city and donated them to assisted housing facilities.
“Everyone was very grateful,” David Schultz of the Jupiter Police Foundation told the NBC affiliate WPTV-TV. “They have been very receptive and appreciate it and it has been a really positive thing for us.”
Over 20 boxes of flowers have been donated
in both private city facilities and across Palm Beach County
like Jupiter Medical Center.
