Tuscaloosa Flower Shoppe owner Sarah Morrison's nephew Alex has autism. There's a special place in her heart to help kids like him.
"They have a no turn away policy. So when families can't pay, we use funds like these to help raise money to pay for the tuition," Morrison said.
On Valentine's Day, firefighters are delivering bouquets. All delivery fees and tips collected today go towards Arts 'n Autism's after school program.
"This day for florists is naturally very stressful and a day of chaos, fun and excitement. But it can really get stressful. So they come on with their smiling faces and they're ready to go and they're excited to deliver and they come back and ask what's next," Morrison said.
Jacobs does the driving and his Valentine helps with directions.
"Oh if I didn't have my best helper, my sweetheart, my wife, it would be an impossible job," Jacobs said.
Last year, the fundraiser brought in nearly $4,000 dollars for Art 'n Autism. The group hopes to match that amount this year.
