A Westport woman has launched a unique idea to help spread the love to front-line workers this Valentine's Day.
Michele Sinacore says she was at Yale New Haven Hospital nearly two years ago when she was diagnosed with a rare tumor. She says they took good care of her and now she's returning the favor.
Sinacore is a floral designer in Westport and set up the website blossomstem.com. People can purchase a rose for a front-line worker and pair it with a special message.
"I wanted to give back, and flowers is the only way I knew how to give back," she said. "Just because we're still in a pandemic, it doesn't mean that love needs to be canceled or postponed. It still goes on and people are finding new and exciting ways to be able to show their appreciation and their love."
Some 1,500 roses have been delivered to front-line workers at area hospitals. Sinacore delivered 500 roses on Friday to Norwalk Hospital, and says they were happy and appreciative.
"We really need to send a signal, especially with Valentine's Day coming up, that they're loved and they're appreciated and they're cared for."
Organizers say they expect to do it again next year.
