The Petal Connection is a group of incredible volunteers who gather together to bring love and joy to hospice patients, their families and seniors in our community. Generous donors supply us with flowers and vases that are repurposed into beautiful, colorful gifts. This random act of kindness blesses not only the recipient but also the person whose hands assemble the bouquets. It is an amazing gift knowing that you can bring a smile to someone in need of joy at a difficult time in their life, with such a simple concept. We call it recycling the love.

We currently gift bedside bouquets to 14 local hospice agencies on a weekly basis. When we have extra bouquets, we gift them to local senior living homes and we have also started partnering with Meals on Wheels to deliver a bouquet with their meals. With our energetic volunteers we are able to create and gift on average 1,000 bouquets a month. We have gifted over 80,000 bouquets since we began our mission of spreading joy and kindness, one petal at a time.

Mission

The Petal Connection is a 100% volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to connect beautiful floral bouquets to local hospice patients and seniors in need of a little joy. Our volunteers repurpose flowers to create colorful bedside bouquets using donated flowers and vases. The Petal Connection partners with hospice and care facilities throughout Sacramento and Placer counties to connect these joyful bouquets with their patients and residents.

Needs

The Petal Connection is in need of funds to cover the cost of floral supplies, greenery to supplement the flowers donated, office supplies, printing supplies, and everyday expenses to keep our organization running smoothly and efficiently.

The Petal Connection would not exist without our amazing volunteers, who are the foundation for our success. Additional funds will allow us to provide a quarterly training program in instruction and floral design for our current volunteers. These funds will also be used for mandatory training for new volunteers.

The Petal Connection is in need of a delivery van to pick up and deliver flowers.

The Petal Connection will be continuing our newest program, "Grow a Row!" This program partners with local growers to actually commit a row of their floral crop to be dedicated to The Petal Connection. We have also expanded this program to grow our own flowers on different sites throughout the community. With the addition of these fresh flowers The Petal Connection will be able to brighten the lives of more of those in end of life care. The Petal Connection plans to supplement these growers for these much needed flowers.

Nonprofit board training is essential to our growth. We would love support to attend important nonprofit workshops.
