In honor of its 25th anniversary, every month Blumen Gardens donates a portion of one day's sales to a local nonprofit. In April, 10 percent of the sales made on April 13 was donated to the Sycamore Public Library. The recipient of proceeds on May 25 was the DeKalb County Drug Court. Future donation days are June 8 (Safe Passage), July 13 (American Red Cross), Aug. 10 (CASA), Sept. 14 (Sycamore Education Foundation), and Oct. 12 (Hope Haven).
