Today is the first day of February, which means that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! And the United Way is offering a deal that will be sure to please your sweetheart, while helping local people in need.
You can buy roses or carnations through Penn State’s Liberal Arts United Way, and proceeds will benefit the Centre County chapter of the United Way. One dozen red roses cost $25, a half dozen roses cost $15, and a half dozen pink, red and white carnations cost $8. Payment (cash or check) is due with your order by Feb. 9. Checks should be made out to Liberal Arts United Way.
All bouquets, provided by Woodrings Floral Gardens in State College,will be wrapped in cellophane and include greens and baby’s breath.
For more information, or to place an order, contact Barb Edwards, 201 Willard Building, firstname.lastname@example.org, 814-863-0344.
There’s a good chance you’ll be buying flowers anyway, might as well support a good cause while you’re at it!
