Rockford flower bed serves as ‘a beacon for those who are struggling’

ROCKFORD — A flower bed planted in the city’s Churchill’s Grove community is designed to provide as an inventive message of hope for people dealing with a psychological wellness disaster.

Bouquets that spell out “988”, the newly founded nationwide Suicide & Disaster Lifeline, can be considered in a 12-by-4 foot display on the southwest corner of Auburn and Cumberland streets.

“We want this flower mattress to be a beacon for all those who are struggling and a dialogue starter for everybody else,” Friends of Veterans Memorial Circle co-chair Helen Karakoudas Redfern claimed in a information release.

Good friends of Veterans Memorial Circle is a volunteer team that has been planting flowers in and all-around the roundabout at North Main & Auburn streets.
