First responders celebrate Teleflora’s ‘Make Someone Smile Week’

MORGANTOWN — More than 400 coffee mugs — each with a smiley face on the side — helped area first responders feel appreciated Tuesday.
This week marks Teleflora’s Make Someone Smile Week and Jimmy Coombs, of Coombs Flowers, handed out these mugs filled with green plants to a variety of police officers, firefighters and paramedics gathered at the Northside Fire Station.
Coombs Flowers has participated in the program for 12 years, but Make Someone Smile Week has been around for 18. Coombs has been on the board of directors for the West Virginia unit for several years.
“They just kind of do it to promote goodwill,” Coombs said.
