The 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Interns volunteer their time and effort to the Imagine the Smiles campaign. Chris Hopkins, a Marketing Intern here, shares his view of the experience of creating floral arrangements to be donated as part of the initiative, complete with coverage from Newsday:
“In the July 30th issue of Newsday, an article was published about 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Imagine the Smiles and 2012 Summer Internship programs. The reporter, Keiko Morris, and photographer, Audrey Tiernan, tell the story through the lens of our interns learning to make floral arrangements for the West Nassau Dialysis Center as a part of Imagine the Smiles. The newspaper came to our corporate headquarters in Carle Place, NY to interview our bright and talented interns, as well as a few other employees, about these two important aspects of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM brand.
