“We’re showing our gratitude to those on the front lines of this pandemic, setting a goal of sending 100,000 flowering orchids to nurses, doctors, and other hospital 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.”

Starting locally, Westerlay Orchids will ship to several major Los Angeles hospitals within the week.
