Poinsettias Fundraiser in Partnership with Non-Profit A New Leaf

Published on Back To Index

Established in 1979, A New Leaf was created to provide horticultural-related job training to adults with developmental disabilities.

Today, A New Leaf serves 325 individuals through employment in five greenhouses, two retail centers, community job sites, students in the classroom, and individuals in residences.

QPSE became a corporate sponsor of A New Leaf in 2016 because we felt truly inspired by this organization.  As a corporate sponsor, we donate funds for a corporate share of their Blooming Acres Farm located nearby in Broken Arrow, OK.  These crops are donated to the Local Food Bank.  Blooming Acres had a great end to their summer this year by growing 2,868 pounds of nutritious produce, which 648 of those pounds were donated to area food banks and partnering organizations.  Partially through the sponsorship QPSE provides, Blooming Acres is able to become part of a greater solution, which is to help end food insecurity and hunger in the local community.

Over the past couple of years, our QPSE headquarters has hosted several fall and spring plant Sales for A New Leaf.  By hosting these sales in our lobby, not only do QPSE employees get to enjoy these plant sales, but so do other tenants in the building complex.  The hard work these individuals put into their flower and plant arrangements truly is incredible.

Recently, A New Leaf held their annual Christmas Poinsettia sale.It really adds to the holiday spirit to walk around and see the lovely poinsettias dotting the QPSE office and reminding us that community efforts matter.
