Good Neighbor Day gets a little help from a flower shop

Posted: Updated:
BURTON, MI (WNEM) -

Sept. 9 is Good Neighbor Day and Mid-Michigan residents are paying it forward with a little help from a florist.

Bentley Florist is giving away 3,000 roses and encouraging people to help put a smile on other's faces.

The concept is simple: you can get a free bouquet of a dozen roses if you pledge to keep one for yourself and give the rest away.

Steve Welch owns the flower shop.

"Either renewing an old acquaintance or making a new friend," Welch said.

He said his business has been doing this for more than 20 years.

"We get letters from the people that receive the one rose and they were having a bad day or whatever. We hear a lot of nice stories so that makes it all worthwhile creating a good feeling in the community," Welch said.
