Volunteer Spotlight: Molly Johnson
September 22, 2022 | Written by
Hope Blooms would not be able to function without the support of our amazing volunteers. Molly Johnson has been a dedicated and generous individual in the story of Hope Blooms and we want to highlight her to share a glimpse at this amazing woman.
Why do you support Hope Blooms?
While supporting the physical needs of people is important, humans, above all, want to be seen, noticed and loved. I love the idea that a simple bouquet of flowers can give this to people, especially those going through challenging times. Plus I love working with flowers! 🙂
What’s your favorite flower and why?
I love anything bright and colorful- especially Zinnias, Daisies, and Dahlias
Why is giving back in your community important to you?
The Fargo/Moorhead community has been home to me most of my life and giving back to the people that live in the community is so important. Passing on to my kids the importance (and joy!) of giving to the community that gives to us is also extremely important to me.
What’s your favorite way to spread joy?
Gifts are my love language so I love to buy items and treats for people that I know they like or will be a special surprise.
Name one of the most joyful moments in your life.
Beyond those “most joyful days” like my wedding day and births of my 3 kids, I love the everyday joys in life. Recently it was this summer as my family floated down a Minnesota river. We were completely alone in nature and the wonder and excitement my kids shared of how “this was the best” was so joyful.
What is something no one would ever guess about you?
People meeting me today would be surprised to know I was a pretty shy kid- I cried anytime I had to talk or be in front of people.
When you’re not spreading joy with Hope Blooms, how do you spend your time?
Doing a lot of the “mom thing”- driving my 3 kids to numerous sports and activities, helping out with PTA, and managing hockey teams. I also substitute teach at northside elementary schools and spend as much time outside at the lake, walking my dog and reading in the sun.
