Hi Iowa florists!
We are now weeks out from the terrible derecho storm that tore through the midwest, especially affecting central Iowa. Over half the state’s crops (Iowan’s livelihood) have been lost and many thousands of people lost power, their homes, and businesses. The recovery is on-going. Our amazing fellow florists have asked: “How can we help? Where can we donate?” The board at Iowa Florists’ Association has created a Go Fund Me page with all donations going to Iowa florists that have been affected by the derecho. We know it’s been a craaazzzy year for everyone, but if you feel led to donate any amount, here is the link to the Go Fund Me donation page.
If you are a florist that has been affected, please go to the IFA’s website to submit a relief request!
