Petals with a Purpose (PWAP)

big_petals_pic.jpgThink green! If you have a passion for flowers, want to help people and save the planet, then Petals with a Purpose is for you! Join The Arc with our effort to connect flowers to people, all the while making a positive difference on the environment. Using items destined for the landfill and with support from the community including Whole Foods, Petals with a Purpose is in full bloom! Combining fine motor skills, music, volunteers and friends with a social conscience, each week they create bouquets of fresh flowers that are donated to the St. Joseph’s food pantry where individuals in the community can be the happy recipients of a random act of kindness.
