What is St. Jude
St. Jude is a children’s hospital located in Memphis, TN. It is a pediatric treatment and research facility focusing on children’s life-threatening diseases. It is special in that no child is denied treatment because of race, religion, or the parents’ ability to pay.
In our local communities, various businesses have different ways of accumulating funds for donations for this hospital. This is an opportunity for residents to treat their sweethearts to a dozen roses for Valentine’s Day while helping unfortunate children; all at the same time. So while the florist is helping St. Jude, purchasers of flowers can, too.
The flower shop has many deals offered throughout the year; this is just one that benefits others in need.
