Canada Blooms Donates Flowers to Residents of Bendale Acres

Canada Blooms Donates Flowers

Canada Blooms and City of Toronto celebrate 11 years of donations.

At a March 20th celebration residents and staff of Bendale Acres joined celebrity gardener Ben Cullen to accept more than 600 plants donated by Canada Blooms and transported by Procter’s Cartage.

This is the 11th year that Canada Blooms has donated plants to a long-term care home owned and operated by the City of Toronto. It allows the many plants and flowers from the festival to continue to bring enjoyment to Torontonians.

Each of the 302 residents at Bendale Acres and seniors from the Adult Day Program and Brimley Acres Supportive Housing received a plant. Meals on Wheels volunteers from TransCare will also deliver plants to seniors in the neighbourhood.

“This is a wonderful annual event for all involved,” said Mayor John Tory. “This donation is a gift that keeps on giving and I thank Canada Blooms for their continued commitment to the City and its seniors.”

“I am so pleased that we have been able to carry on this tradition for over a decade,” said Terry Caddo, General Manager of Canada Blooms.”Receiving these plants and flowers delights the residents and clients in long-term care homes. It brings me great pleasure to witness the
positive effects of these donations.”
