Karin’s Florist, a stalwart of the Fairfax community, is passionate about giving back. From the very beginning, founder Bill Dukas instilled a community spirit into the business that is carried on by his daughter, Maris Angolia. His motto, “If you take care of your community, they will take care of you”, still rings true today.
Through “Karin’s Gives Back”, their 7 year old charitable donation program, their floral artistry can be found on tables at events of more than 100 nonprofits in Fairfax County. They also give back and promote awareness for organizations such as the Wish You Well Foundation, Inova Health Foundation, Wolf Trap Foundation, Jill’s House, Leukemia Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Friends of the Fairfax County Animal Shelter. In 2016, in honor of their 60th Anniversary, they initiated a program to allow brides and wedding hosts to donate a portion of their product bill to one of four incredible local organizations. Most recently, they have introduced a children’s floral product line and are working with local children’s organizations to give back a portion of the proceeds to them.
Cheers to this local small business with a great big heart!
