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 mothers have been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The idea behind our mission being 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 donated 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. Our vision is to establish scholarship funds at all the local community colleges as well as establishing a Trust, with allocation for scholarships. One of our main goals for 2012 is to award three scholarships to local area students. The funds for these scholarships are currently available through the scholarship fund we have established at Montgomery County Community College. Please check the Scholarship tab for further information.
All staff are volunteers. Current Prayers and Poinsettias board members are as follows:
Kim Seidel (President),
Tammy Snyder (Vice President),
Marlys Thomas ( Marketing Director),
June Harnish (Business Manager),
Mary Lynn Beatty (Secretary/Treasurer).
