Girl, check out what we've been up to the past few months!

Pink Christmas Party Watertown, CT Dec. 30th 6:30-9:00pm 

Petals and S.T.E.M. closed out our winter season with an all pink Christmas party/Secret Santa event. The time was bittersweet as we enjoyed our last pow-wow before our hiatus. We traded gifts, indulged in some sweet treats, and even got a little too competitive during our gingerbread house building! We are so proud of how much we've grown and how far we've come in 2023 and we can't wait to reunite with you all this spring

Christmas Toy Drive Hopkins Street Center Waterbury, CT December 20th 3:00-6:30pm 

In the season of giving, Petals and S.T.E.M. sprung into action with a mission to bring joy to children across Waterbury this Christmas. Thanks to the generous contributions of supporters near and far, Petals and S.T.E.M. was able to provide 50 families with toys this Christmas. That's approximately 300 toys and 150 children! Financial donations poured in from across the country, from New York to Florida. We are truly feeling blessed being able to be a blessing to others and we cannot thank you all enough for your support during this venture. We're hoping our giving makes Christ smile on His birthday this year!

Friendsgiving Art by Adreana November 1st 3:00-6:00pm 

We are still reminiscing about the wonderful time we spent with Art by Adreana enjoying Friendsgiving with all of our Petals and S.T.E.M. sisters. We had a wonderful time enjoying a delicious potluck style meal (with yummy desserts to follow!). Our girls then spent time making prayer boards as we learned that putting our faith in God first can hold the key to our success. What a wonderful faith-filled event and special thank you to Art by Adreana. Visit www.artbyadreana.com to learn more about this great local art space in Waterbury, CT.

"Chat and Chill" Pajama Party Post University October 25th 7pm-8pm

Did you make it to our pajama party at Post University? We had such a great time in the company of our Post University sisters from Black Student Union and Los Latinos. We discussed techniques to implement further representation on campus in both academics and athletics. We also discussed the importance of sisterhood and solidarity within PWI's. Black Student Unions and Los Latinos are important clubs on Post University's campus that promote diversity and unity.

"All Shade, No Tea" Interactive Discussion Panel University of Hartford October 24th 5pm-6-pm

Our collaboration with S.I.S. at the University of Hartford  was a huge success! We discussed topics ranging from dating as a woman of color to mental health in Black and Hispanic communities. Girls in the audience shared their on campus experiences and had fun making new friendships amongst one another. Petals and S.T had a great time meeting new sisters and spending time on campus promoting diversity and cultural awareness!
