For the fourth year in a row, the Power of Flowers Project was the proud recipient of the Dana Home Foundation Grant.
At a recent banquet, POFP Founder, Joyce B., was on hand to accept the generous gift from the folks at Dana Home.
This year, the $10,000 Grant will provide Flower Therapy Workshops for Lexington residents in assisted living, nursing homes, and adult day care facilities. The money will also benefit former Lexington residents who live in those care centers in the surrounding area.
Some of the money will provide for administrative support for our organization to help with recruitment and training of volunteers from those communities to conduct Flower Therapy Workshops.
The Dana Home Grant is the result of a long history of helping seniors and of service to the Lexington community. The Dana Home opened in 1916 and operated as a home for seniors for 95 years before closing in 2010. Following the sale of the home (now the Inn at Hastings Park), the Board of the Dana Home voted to use its endowment to fund programs that provide benefits to seniors with a connection to Lexington.
Dana Home Foundation, we salute you as you continue to honor the legacy of Ellen Dana who made the original generous bequest of her home. Our sincere gratitude for helping us spread the joy!
