PRESS ROOM: BunchesDirect Gives Back Helping Operation Shower

PRESS ROOM: Sept 2011

 

BunchesDirect gives back to the community providing flowers for Operation Shower

 

People and companies alike are becoming more socially conscious and are looking for ways to give back to the community. With so many great causes out there, companies must choose which initiatives to align themselves with; for BunchesDirect, Operation Shower was an excellent fit.

 

Operation Shower began in March 2007, when LeAnn Morrissey, looking for a way to give back to her uncle who was deployed overseas, was asked to send a card to four women who were expecting babies while their spouses were deployed.   LeAnn decided to try to do much more for these families.  She set out with family and friends to send a “shower in a box” to the four military families who were expecting babies while the husband was deployed. The overwhelming support she received putting these boxes together and the messages of thanks she received from these moms left her with little doubt that this was something worth doing — over and over again!   She joined with Kris Jackson, to hold the first unit-wide shower at Ft. Bragg, NC in June 2007.   From that point forward, they made it official and Operation Shower was born! As of October 2010, the Operation Shower team has, through the generous donations of individuals and corporations and through volunteer-power, showered over 400 women.  The showers provide wonderful items for the new babies and moms, and help bring the women together to celebrate with others in the same situation.

 

How did BunchesDirect get involved? They were in contact with Operation Shower’s chief event planner, Amy Belle Isle who asked them to “donate flowers to help bring our tables to life at this (Norfolk, Virginia) event. Donate flowers they did. Arrangements were made for tables at the event and all around to set the theme. The event, held on September 17th 2011, was a great success! Forty military moms-to-be whose spouses are deployed on the USS GEORGE H W BUSH Carrier were showered, and forty showers in a box were sent to the women who do not live in Norfolk, VA.
