Persimmon Petals

YWCA Hartford Region has launched an online floral and gift shop called Persimmon Petals! It’s an exciting social enterprise designed to plant the seeds for continued success for our programs and services for women, girls and families in our community.

We use the tagline Flowers that Empower because that’s exactly what Persimmon Petals is all about. While providing beautifully customized floral arrangements to meet your needs, your purchasing power also maximizes your social impact throughout the Hartford Region.

And who doesn’t love flowers? We’ll work with you to create arrangements to meet all your needs or to simply find flowers that feed your soul through self-care! Purchase your flowers today!

Our award-winning designers take pride in the arrangements they craft. Among our designers’ wins, Kirstin Havelevitch took first place and Annette Peck took second place in the 2023 Fine Art & Flowers competition at the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.

Thank You to Our ‘Seed’ Partners!

In 2021, YWCA Hartford Region received generous support from Hartford Foundation for Public Giving to launch Persimmon Petals. We are so grateful for their support and the support from our community for their generosity in helping to make Persimmon Petals a reality.

Maximize Your Social Impact!

While we launched Persimmon Petals for our community, we are also working to develop programs to help women and girls gain invaluable experience in the workforce by offering job training and career opportunities with our store. With your support, we can keep our vision for Persimmon Petals growing!
