Everyone loves the first flowers of spring. For this project, students will come to the hospital in the fall and plant narcissus (daffodil) bulbs, the first flowers of spring, around the hospital. Students would then return in the spring when the flowers have bloomed and cut some, not all, stems to deliver to patients who are in the hospital.

Students can also come and tour the hospital when they come to plant the bulbs and see
what their generosity will do for our hospital. Then they will return in the spring and cut some of the flowers that bloom and deliver them to patients and see the joy they bring to everyone.

PLEASE NOTE: This project has a fall deadline due to the planting of bulbs!
