Flower-A-Thon!

It's time again for JARC's annual Flower-A-Thon!  We need your help planting brightly colored flowers to further beautify our JARC homes.  Green thumbs are not necessary, just fun people willing to get a little dirty!  Bring your family and friends, or come on your own. 

Planting takes 1-2 hours, based on the number of flats of flowers and volunteers at that particular home.

JARC would like to give a special THANK YOU to Ivan Katz and Great Lakes Landscape Design, Inc. for donating the beautiful flowers for this event year after year!

Not able to volunteer, but want to help beautify a JARC home?  Our homes always need mulch to help cut back on weeds and maintain the landscape/flower beds.  Please contact Melissa Garrett for more information. 

To volunteer at Flower-A-Thon, please complete the form below.
