Los Alamos Visiting Nurses are offering the community bunches of sunshine.
This gift is available through the 15th Annual Daffodils for Hospice fundraiser.
The sun-colored flowers are shipped from California in enormous boxes. When they arrive in Los Alamos, hospice workers bunch the flowers and they are stored in a space donated by the Netuschils before and during the sale.
The flowers serve as a fundraiser for the organization.
“It’s a national initiative,” Executive Director Sarah Rochester said, “and many not-for-profit hospices do Daffodils for Hospice.”
She added 100 percent of the proceeds go toward hospice. Last year, the springtime flowers raised $19,700, “thanks to the generosity of this community,” Rochester said.
This year, she said the plan is to use some of the money to move closer to building a hospice house.
Possible locations for the hospice house are being considered but Rochester said they are hoping to break ground on the building this year.
