New Orleans flowers shop offers free flowers and candles for homeless

NEW ORLEANS (AP) The New Orleans flower shop is offering free flowers for anyone who needs them to bring a friend home from the city’s homeless shelter.

The store in downtown New Orleans is offering a special sale Thursday for anyone with a friend who needs a free bouquet or candle to keep warm.

The sale is limited to one bouquet per person and the candle must be left at home or in a box for the homeless to pick up.

The shop’s owner, Jennifer Mott, says the sale has helped people reconnect with each other.

She says the store has sold out of roses and is currently out of rose petals and other decorations.
