‘For the community’: Dunn volunteers deliver flowers to nursing homes during pandemic

Growing up, Jefferey Surles remembers visiting nursing homes with his mother, a former nurse who specialized in geriatric care. 

Recently Surles, a Cape Fear High School graduate who now owns a florist shop in Dunn, said he felt as if God was telling him to provide flowers to nursing home patients who are shut in during the coronavirus pandemic. 

“My mama always said that these people are forgotten,” Surles said.
