Adopt-A-Basket - LEADS


Help us make Lancaster beautiful!

Thanks to LEADS and donations from everyday citizens like you, the streets of Downtown Lancaster bloom with flowers every spring and summer.

For six glorious months — from May to October — beautiful flower baskets hanging from 300 lampposts beckon residents and visitors to our one-of-a-kind shops, top-notch restaurants, and historic charm.

Your $100 gift will adopt a flower basket, providing you an opportunity to celebrate a friend or loved one, or honor Mother’s Day, Dad’s Day or your pup’s birthday. Personalized tags, naming you or your honoree will be hung from each basket. You will receive a note letting you know the location of your basket.

As you may know, LEADS is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to make Lancaster a more beautiful place to live, work and visit. And we do all of it with donations from the community.

Your basket adoption helps offset the cost of the flowering project, but there’s much more to the process. The baskets must be watered and fertilized seven days a week. That alone costs an additional $15,000 annually. So we ask you to also consider making a donation to the watering and upkeep of these spectacular baskets.

We hope you are able to join our budding list of contributors and help LEADS in making Downtown Lancaster beautiful.

“I am happy to support this wonderful organization as my mom grew up in Lancaster City and sponsoring hanging baskets is a great way to honor my mom who loved Lancaster and her family.”
