Earlier this month, brownstone stoops along Pacific Street in Cobble Hill were packed with fresh flower arrangements. It looked like an outdoor flower show, and briefly it was.

But mostly it was a staging area for generous contributions of fresh flower arrangements from BloomAgainBklyn for the workers and patients at Cobble Hill Health Center.

Participants held up signs of support outside Cobble Hill Health Center.

Founded by Cobble Hill resident Caroline Anderson and Heights resident Donna Whiteford, BloomAgainBklyn is the City’s only nonprofit dedicated to repurposing and donating fresh flowers to seniors and victims of homelessness and trauma.

Some 16 brownstone stoops on Pacific Street were designated the “staging area” before volunteers presented 300 flower arrangements to Cobble Hill Health Center.

BloomAgainBklyn co-founder Caroline Anderson attended the event.

The event drew Brooklyn Eagle photographers and socially-distanced crowds of supporters, and was hosted by BloomAgainBklyn volunteers, Cobble Hill Health Center CEO Donny Tuchman, Assemblymember Jo Anne Simon and City Councilmember Brad Lander.

The Eagle covered BloomAgainBklyn’s first fundraiser in May 2019.

A hyper-local cheering crowd gathered to express gratitude for the tireless work of the Cobble Hill Health Center care team in April. Cobble Hill Health Center came together with the Arbeeny family to celebrate the life of Norman Arbeeny in May. 

State Sen. Brian Kavanagh participated in the event.
