PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — A Palm Beach Gardens family is dedicated to spreading joy and helping others celebrate important milestones as graduations, weddings, birthday, and baby showers remain on hold.

"Card My Yard Palm Beach Gardens" opened as a yard-greeting service three years ago, but the last few weeks have been especially busy as people look for unique ways to celebrate big moments.

"Thank you to everyone for the incredible amount of business this past month," reads a post on the company’s Facebook page.

The recent spike in demand comes as the Palm Beach County School District made the decision to move to "virtual graduation ceremonies" for this year's graduating seniors. The ceremonies will be aired on television and streamed online in late May.

In a letter to the class of 2020, Superintendent of Schools Donald Fennoy said this was the best way to recognize this year's class given that the state is still under a state-at-home order.

That's one big reason why families have turned to "Card My Yard Palm Beach Gardens" to help out.

"Graduations may be canceled, but that doesn't mean you can’t still celebrate," reads another post on Facebook. "We'd love to help you do just that! After all, they worked so hard for this!"

The business has seen a surge in demand and booked for the entire month of April.
