The INTERNal Perspective of Sarah Melley: Delivering Smiles to Local Island Harvest Food Pantry

This is our first intern activity post! It’s written by Sarah Melley, one of our incredible Public Relations Interns! Here’s Sarah as she shares the experience of some of our fantastic interns delivering flowers to the Island Harvest Mobile Food Pantry for our Imagine the Smiles campaign:

On Wednesday, August 1st myself and four fellow interns delivered smiles by donating flower bouquets and arrangements to Island Harvest’s Mobile Food Pantry as part of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Imagine the Smiles campaign. Island Harvest’s Mobile Food Pantry, a weekly food pantry that provides local communities with nutritious perishable and non-perishable foods such as fresh produce, meats, pasta and canned goods. Once we arrived at the Mobile Food Pantry location in Freeport, we unloaded the flowers and started to help the volunteers by joining the assembly line to prepare the food items for the community members. After the bags were packed up we moved over to our station and started to hand out flower arrangements and bouquets to the people on the line. Everyone at Island Harvest was so excited to receive flowers and as we (the interns) helped to arrange the flowers, we were personally touched! Whether they were planning on enjoying the arrangements themselves or give the flowers to their parents, spouses or friends – each of their glowing faces were so appreciative. It’s exciting to be a part of such a feel good initiative like Imagine the Smiles!
