| May 11, 2020 | 0 Comments

For the past several weeks Westerlay Orchids, a third generation, family owned business, has shown their appreciation and support for community members on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic by sending thousands of boxes of orchids.  The company has shipped 49,000 orchids thus far and is well on their way to accomplishing their “100,000 Orchid Challenge” to uplift and inspire communities throughout California by sending orchids to front line workers and those isolated in quarantine.

“We’re showing our gratitude to those on the front lines of this pandemic, setting a goal of sending 100,000 flowering orchids to non-profits, nurses, doctors, and other essential staff in California,” explains Westerlay Orchids Owner Toine Overgaag. “We need the community’s help to reach this goal, so we are looking for significant financial sponsorships to help cover partial costs while ensuring the livelihood of our 120 employees and the survival of our business.”
