At the 2016 International Floriculture Expo, Random Acts of Flowers collected hundreds of fresh cut flower donations from exhibitors. Staff and volunteers worked through the night to process and load the flowers onto delivery trucks, then delivered re-purposed bouquets to nearly 300 patients at Waterford Nursing and Rehabilition and Northwestern and Presence St. Joseph Hospitals, as well as veterans in the Chicago area.
