An article recently appeared in the Langhorne Ledger, which is a local paper. Debbie Adams had sent a thank you email to Yellow Daffodil Florist after the Feast Day, and is quoted in the article.
In her email message, Debbie thanked Yellow Daffodil for the daisies they provided which were distributed to the Sisters on St. Marguerite’s Feast Day. (A type of daisy is named Marguerite, and “Daisy” is used as a nickname for Marguerite and Margaret).
“We were thrilled with the bouquets – they were just beautiful, and we knew they were put together with love and care.”
The Yellow Daffodil, a social enterprise of Woods Services in Langhorne, gratefully filled the order. A social enterprise is a business with a social mission. For Woods Services, it’s creating more employment opportunities for the disability community, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), emotional and behavioral concerns, cerebral palsy, and other physical, developmental, and intellectual disabilities.
The Yellow Daffodil’s work is even more critical as we’ve become more distant during the pandemic. Faced with the challenge of social distancing for their Feast Day, the bouquets were ordered and delivered individually, creating a special moment amid tough times.
“The pandemic has made it very difficult and sometimes impossible for the Sisters to gather together, so it was wonderful to see how happy they were to receive this gift,” Debbie wrote, We send our sincerest Thank You to everyone who was involved in putting them together. Please know how grateful we are for such a wonderful job!!”
