Our charity was founded with the mission of providing scholarship funds to
children whose mothers suffer from breast cancer.
Prayers and Poinsettias is a faith-based organization that was inspired by a mother's love. We are caretakers of her wish to provide scholarships to students, whose mother have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
This idea behind our mission is that education is often unaffordable
when illness drains family funds. Initially, Prayers and Poinsettias primary concern was aiding in a meaningful Christmas for the children of a mother suffering with terminal breast cancer. A holiday plant sale was the perfect solution. Our staff requested that those who donate to our cause also remember to pray for the family. The first year we sold 175 plants, with steady increases in sales we are proud to announce that this year we sold 416 plants.
Prayers and Poinsettias was founded in 2007. We were granted 501(c)(3) by the IRS in 2009.
All staff are volunteers.
Current Prayers and Poinsettias board members:
