DTSB starts new flower donation program

Posted:

Downtown South Bend plans on doubling the amount of flowers on display in the city this year with the help of community members.  The Program, titled Grow Downtown, is a fundraising opportunity presented by DTSB, allowing individuals to get involved and take pride in their community.

Individuals can purchase hanging flower baskets and plantings to adorn the streets of downtown South Bend. Each floral arrangement adds color, vitality, and beauty to the downtown area. The arrangements will represent, memorialize, or honor community members while serving as a catalyst for growth downtown.

The Executive Director of DTSB, Aaron Perri, is excited to partner with the community to make this program a success.  "We have done flowers in downtown," Perri says, "the businesses have supported that initiative, the city has supported that initiative year after year, but we want to double the amount of flowers that are in downtown so we are looking to the community to help support that initiative."

An individual, custom engraved plaque, with your message installed outdoors near your donated item.  You can also choose where you would like your flowers placed.  More information can be found on their website Grow Downtown.
