We feel so fortunate to be the recipients of their?innovative approach to giving back, especially this year.

About Smile Farms
Smile Farms is the signature philanthropic partner of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. It was started by the company’s founder, Jim McCann, and his brother, CEO Chris McCann.
The McCanns’ brother, Kevin, lives in a group home on Long Island, N.ew York, run by the Independent Group Home Living Program (IGHL), and that program’s CEO, Walter Stockton, had mentioned to Jim that he was having trouble finding work for residents.
Jim was happy to help. But when he scanned the local job market, he discovered that there were indeed very few options for people with developmental disabilities. The first Smile Farms campus opened up in 2015.
We are grateful to every person who shops from this collection – they are making a true difference with each dollar.
Today, Smile Farms has 11 campuses in the New York metro area. It has expanded its partnerships to include non-profits that serve not only individuals with developmental disabilities but those with other disabilities as well.?
Smile Farms creates meaningful opportunities at local farms, urban gardens, and greenhouses for hundreds of adults and youth with different abilities. There they can grow and sell flowers, plants, and produce in the communities where they live. Almost none of the farmers have worked before, so for the first time, they are able to experience the satisfaction of mastering new skills, the pleasure of contributing to their team and community, and the thrill of taking home a paycheck.
