The Floral Heart Project, a COVID-19 Memorial effort, will lay floral hearts in cities and towns across the US in conjunction with a National Day of Mourning effort. The project partnered local florists, COVID-19 loss families and volunteers to lay hearts in cities and towns throughout the United States. Charlotter and writer for The Charlotte News Katherine Arthaud is volunteering for the Vermont event on March 1.

The non-partisan effort on March 1st is aligned with Marked by COVID’s work to create a National Day of Mourning. To date, over 50 mayors from around the United States have supported their resolution. The Floral Heart Project supports efforts that are actively focused on creating memorials now and permanent memorials in the future.

On Monday, March 1 at 1:00 p.m. there will be a wreath laying on the Church Street Marketplace.
