ANCHORAGE,Alaska (KTUU) – Some women will tell you a single rose is often times as thoughtful as a bouquet filled with a dozen.
“We have a lot of clients that are thinking of their moms. Their moms might not be with us anymore but we want to make sure we’re celebrating them,” Stephanie Compton, an Americorp Vista at Bean’s Cafe said.
The soup kitchen, which serves thousands of meals to those in need each year, honored moms on Sunday by handing out 100 donated roses. Compton said the majority of those visiting Bean’s Cafe are men, but the organization wanted to make the day special for women too.
Ladies were also seated at special tables and served meals first.
