'Cupid Crew' brings roses to Valley senior-living residents

PHOENIX (FOX 10) - Valentine's Day is a day to show our love and appreciation for someone special.

"I don't believe I've ever gotten a rose on Valentine's Day before and I'm very grateful," Arthur Glasser said.

Popping in on those who may have been feeling a bit lonely today was one Valley non-profit group, Wish of a Lifetime.

The group sent their "Cupid Crew," a nationwide volunteer movement created by local CEO and former NFL player Jeremy Bloom, to deliver about 1,500 roses to assisted living homes throughout the Valley.

Seniors were in for a pleasant surprise.

"It's lovely, very, very flattering!" Doris Borno said. "Thank you. It's delightful."

Wish of a Lifetime made Valentine's Day that much sweeter for some seniors who hold this holiday close to their hearts.

"I was married on Valentine's Day," Hazel Flaazrty said. "He passed away in 1996 and it was wonderful, so this is wonderful. Thank you."

It was also a day to remind others that they are appreciated and loved.
