A Budding Partnership: Hope Blooms and Gate City Bank

We’re proud to partner with Hope Blooms, a nonprofit organization that repurposes donated flowers by arranging them into beautiful bedside bouquets and delivering them to inspire hope, happiness and emotional healing.

The Smallest Acts of Kindness Can Make the Biggest Impact.

That’s the core philosophy behind Hope Blooms, whose flowers are delivered throughout Fargo, ND, West Fargo, ND, Moorhead, MN, and the surrounding communities. We’ve donated more than in matching team member gifts to Hope Blooms, whose recipients are often:

  • Individuals with long-term illnesses
  • Nursing home residents
  • Homebound seniors
  • Women’s shelters
  • Hospice patients
  • Cancer centers
  • Therapy clinics
  • Local schools
  • And more

“At Gate City Bank, creating a better way of life for our communities guides everything we do,” says Amanda Torok, Senior Vice President of Culture. “It’s a joy and privilege for us to support Hope Blooms and help bring a little hope, happiness and healing to people who need it most.”

“When my mom passed away in 2017, I heard about Hope Blooms from our hospice team and donated all of the funeral flowers in her honor. Bringing a little sunshine to somebody’s day, especially during the darkest times, is what it’s all about.”
