Hearts on Fire: Volunteers Deliver Flowers for Arts ‘n Autism

Tuscaloosa Flower Shoppe has once again teamed up with the Arts ‘n Autism After School Program for the Valentine’s Day fundraiser, “Hearts on Fire for Arts 'n Autism.” The Shoppe will donate all delivery fees and tips collected Feb. 12-13 by volunteers – members of Tuscaloosa’s BNI chapters.

The flower shop will also sell paper hearts for the fundraiser ranging in price from $1 to $50. Anyone who purchases a heart worth $10 or more will be eligible for an upgraded flower arrangement. All proceeds benefit the mission of Arts ‘n Autism, which will provide after school care, summer camps and arts-based therapy for children and young adults in the West Alabama area.


According to Voni Wyatt, the program’s director of development, Arts ‘n Autism fills a need for families dealing with autism because so many of them cannot attend typical programs or activities.

“Arts ‘n Autism’s after school program is filling a need for so many of the working families in West Alabama that have children with autism. It gives their children a safe place to be until they get off work,” said Wyatt.

“There is a fee for the program, but it is the program's policy not to turn anyone away because they cannot pay,” Wyatt added. “Fundraisers such as this one help us fill the gap.”
