What an amazing act of kindness! Highland Flowers & Gifts will be giving away free long-stemmed roses tomorrow, September 11th, to bring a little happiness on a day that's usually filled with mourning.
Anyone can stop in between 9am and 6pm and pick up a dozen roses while supplies last, no purchase necessary. According to the New Jersey Herald, owner Lori Struck was inspired by a similar promotion called Good Neighbor Day.
"I started out in a little store in Highland Lakes 25 years ago and became a [Florists' Transworld Delivery] florist, and they used to offer us really cheap roses to give out. Then about five years ago FTD stopped doing it, so I started doing it myself on 9/11."
