Community Blooms Program

CAPS has partnered with Freytag’s Florist and their Austin Community Blooms Program which is designed to continuously give something back to the community all year long. With each order, a customer will need to designate the CAPS organization and Freytag‘s Florist will provide a 5% donation at no extra cost. Simply check the “This is a Austin Community Blooms Order” box on the right-hand side of the Payment Information page. A drop-down menu will appear under the Gift Card section called “Austin Community Blooms“, then choose your {CAPS} organization’s name to receive the contribution. Our program encourages local charity donors to take advantage of our service when sending flowers across town or even around the world!

FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL AND NATIONAL PARKINSON’S AWARENESS MONTHFreytag happily wanted to extend a special 5% discount for CAPS members to use during April 2021 for National Parkinson’s Awareness Month as well. For either online or phone orders, your members can apply the promotional code FFCAPS with no minimum purchase required and only one use per email address during checkout.
