Cash Mob business gives back

    PARKMAN — The Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce “Think Spring CASH MOB” will take place this Thursday, March 14 at 5:30 p.m. Please join us in showing support for independently-owned small business, Chloe’s Collections Florist & Gift Shoppe of Parkman. Chloe’s Collections is located at 713 State Highway 150, directly after the Parkman Baptist Church on the right hand side of the road. 

    Chloe’s Collections is a full service florist and gift shoppe specializing in Victorian and Shabby Chic designs. They provide local and online delivery services seven days a week. Floral design, tuxedo rental and a varied network of local service providers enables Chloe’s Collections to offer “one stop shopping” for wedding and special occasion planning. Customers are always amazed at the wide array of products to shop from at Chloe’s Collections. 
    In addition to promotions such as free gift with purchase, coupons and 10 percent off Easter flower orders, Chloe’s Collections will be donating a portion of the proceeds from Thursday’s Cash Mob to an important local cause, the Aliza Jean Family Cancer Foundation. The official kickoff fundraiser for the foundation will be held on Saturday, March 30 at 7 p.m. at the Harmony Community Coffee House. The band String Field Theory will be performing to raise money for the Aliza Jean Family Cancer Foundation.  Admission is by donation, and all money will go directly to local families who have children fighting brain cancer. There will be more information about the kick off fundraiser at Thursday’s CASH MOB.  
    Chloe’s Collections owner Joy Gregory is passionate about her business giving back to the community – especially when it comes to those who have been diagnosed with cancer. “I worked with oncology patients and their families for more than two decades and I know their stressors are more than just the obvious,” she said. “I believe that as business owners we not only have the responsibility of good customer relations and guaranteed quality, but also a responsibility to give back where it can help the most. It is my sincere hope that other businesses will join me in supporting the Aliza Jean Foundation so that families experiencing this most difficult battle will feel the burden lightened ever so slightly. I wish to thank the Piscataquis Chamber of Commerce and its director Erin Warstler for this opportunity. See you at the CASH MOB!”
