Local Trig’s stores participate in Petal It Forward
November 01, 2019
Trig’s Floral & Home associates randomly surprised people with floral bouquets Wednesday, Oct. 23. The lucky recipients received two bouquets — one to keep and one to share with a family member, coworker, or a complete stranger.
Six Trig’s locations participated in Petal It Forward, a nationwide floral industry initiative encouraging recipients to “pay it forward” with the second bouquet.
The Minocqua team went to a number of locations including Avanti Health and Rehabilitation Center, downtown businesses and the Minocqua Police Department.
“We spent hours at Avanti visiting the residents and sharing flowers and stories with the veterans, nurses and even the oldest resident in Woodruff,” Trig’s team member Melissa Robinson said. “It was an amazing day.”
Participating locations included Wausau, Stevens Point, Tomahawk, Rhinelander, Minocqua and Eagle River. Village Market Floral & Home in Manitowish Waters also participated.
“Participating in the Petal it Forward event is something our team looks forward to each year,” Floral & Home director Audrey Glodowski said. “Being able to share flowers with our community members and providing them with an additional bouquet — allows us to experience the joy the person has when they receive the flowers and the excitement they express for the bouquet they can give away.”
