It’s almost the time of year when poinsettias make their festive appearance. This holiday season, Calloway’s Nursery will again support local nonprofit Lena Pope through its annual poinsettia sale. From November 1 through November 24, a portion of proceeds from the presales of poinsettias will benefit Lena Pope, a nonprofit that provides counseling and education services to assist more than 20,000 people in need each year.
Last year, Calloway’s Nursery raised more than $30,000 for Lena Pope to support the nonprofit’s mission to create hope, happiness and success for children and families. This longtime partnership allows Calloway’s Nursery to directly and positively impact communities around the Dallas-Fort Worth area, where the company is based.
“Calloway’s is proud to have the opportunity to support Lena Pope and help those who utilize their valuable resources,” said Calloway’s Nursery CEO, Marce Ward, via press release. “We are a locally owned company, so community is one of our core values. Lena Pope is an important organization that has served our community for almost 90 years.”
For each poinsettia sold, 10 percent will be donated to Lena Pope. Six-inch red poinsettias are $9.99 each; 20 or more poinsettias must be ordered to receive free wraps and delivery from December 4 through December 15.
“We greatly appreciate Calloway’s ongoing support of Lena Pope’s work to empower families in our community through education and counseling services,” said Todd Landry, CEO of Lena Pope. “The holidays are about bringing loved ones together – something that is made possible in part by our generous partners, such as Calloway’s.”
