New volunteer group blooms after closure of Random Acts of Flowers
March when costly rent made continued operations at its Edison Way site untenable.
Blossom Buddies was started by Sheela Veerina of Los Altos Hills, formerly an active volunteer with Random Acts of Flowers. She runs the flower-arranging workshop out of her garage.
"I was hoping somebody else would start it, but nobody else did. So I had to," she says.
With a group of volunteers, many recruited from Random Acts of Flowers, Veerina has relaunched the initiative, partnering with some of the same vendors who previously donated their blooms.
Currently, she says, she's collecting flowers from Trader Joe's in Menlo Park and Palo Alto, Draeger's in Los Altos, Safeway in Los Altos and Ladera Garden and Gifts.
Blossom Buddies is not yet a formally recognized nonprofit. (There's a lot of paperwork involved, she notes.)
Veerina said she got involved as a volunteer at Random Acts of Flowers in 2015 and found the volunteer work to be a meaningful way to connect with veterans and do something to boost people's mental health.
She said recipients like veterans are often surprised to be presented with bouquets, and men one wouldn't expect to care about flowers at all even fight over which bouquet they get.
"It's very sweet," she said. "When we went back to the Palo Alto VA, they were so excited, and so happy to see us again."
Plus, in the time the volunteers spend arranging the flowers, many develop friendships and camaraderie.
Veerina says she is accepting vase donations. People who want to get involved or help out can email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Royal Wedding facts – from the dress, flowers, cake and guests to the cost and Meghan Markle's bridesmaids
In February, a sudden surge in betting was so large that British bookies Paddy Power had to suspend bets on Meghan’s dress designer altogether.
A flurry of bets were placed on one well-known person, Alexander McQueen.
And in March, Ladbrokes announced it has pulled the plug on its bets too, amid speculation that the dress designer will be Ralph & Russo.
NBC Speculation is rife about who has made Meghan's dress ahead of the wedding - here she wears a gown in TV show Suits
This is the same designer as the person behind the £56k braless dress she wore in her engagement pictures.

Local resident Crouse helps annual Flower Run event blossom
Children distribute flowers to runners participating in last year’s Flower Run.
When Debbie Crouse’s children were growing up, the Los Altos resident sought ways to give back to her community. One way was joining Child Advocates of Silicon Valley, which supports children in the foster-care system.
In an effort to raise money for the nonprofit agency, Crouse is helping organize the second Flower Run, a 5K run/walk scheduled 9 a.m. May 12 beginning at Los Altos Hills Town Hall.
“I just decided that I wanted to do something within the community,” said Crouse, now a Child Advocates board member. “I used to volunteer with the homeless shelter before I moved to Los Altos. I was attracted to the idea of helping children who don’t have the benefits mine ended up having – that’s why I’m involved with the organization.”
Child Advocates helps children navigate the foster-care system by matching them with an adult who acts as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) and represents the children in court. The Milpitas-based organization’s goal is “to provide stability and hope to children... May 24, 2018
