Caring Rose Week helps feed local families in need

BISMARCK, N.D. - Rustic Petals on North Washington in Bismarck is participating in the 19th annual Caring Rose Week.

Ten dollars and two cans of food will get you a dozen non-arranged roses. The proceeds raised during the week will go to the Thanksgiving Food Collection to help feed local families who are in need.

"It's one of my favorite events of the year. We probably take in over 800 to a thousand canned food items. We donate them to Corpus Christi for their food drive. It's really nice, because it's right before the holidays so it helps feed a lot of families around town," said Jacey Nesland, owner of Rustic Petals.

Rustic Petals is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
