Daffodils Share Memories and Hope
This Spring share memories by purchasing Daffodils by the Bunch. Daffodils by the Bunch is the signature activity of Memory Matters Utah/Nevada that raises both community awareness and revenue for local programs and services through the sale of fresh-cut daffodils from Washington State.
Memory Matters Utah/Nevada’s Daffodil by the Bunch is a simple, yet effective way for the community to help bring hope into the lives of local dementia patients and their caregivers dealing with the daily struggles of memory loss due to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Beginning in January, volunteers will mobilize to sell cut daffodils, the first flower of spring, in support of the organization’s mission to reduce isolation and increase wellness for individuals with dementia and their caregivers through activities, support, education, and consultations. Daffodil by the Bunch is a compassionate movement where the community is asked to come together and raise money and lift spirits for those battling this disease.
LuAnn Lundquist, Founder and Executive Director of Memory Matters Utah/Nevada said, “When you participate in Daffodil by the Bunch, you aren’t simply buying flowers; you are funding programs that provide real support to patients and caregivers in our community. Through the community’s generous support of Daffodils by the Bunch, we will be able to continue to walk alongside those who are navigating the difficult path of Alzheimer's disease and dementia and give encouragement and support to their caregivers.”
Daffodils by the Bunch is about more than just giving beautiful flowers, it is an opportunity to share memories and hope. Please join Memory Matters Utah/Nevada in this annual celebration. Your generous support funds local programs that include: Information and Referral Services, Support Groups, Care Consultations, Memory Testing Consultations, Outreach and Education Events, Educational Resources, Interfaith Training Programs, Early Stage Memory Loss Classes, Memory Activity Classes and “Good Morning Sunshine” Wellness Calling Program.
