Meeting Our New Executive Director!

We are thrilled to introduce Maureen George, the new Executive Director of the Power of Flowers Project. 

At a special “Meet and Greet” gathering at the Workshop on Monday, March 18, POFP Chair of the Board, Patrice F. introduced Maureen to the group.  If you weren’t able to make the meeting, here’s the scoop on the new kid in town.

With an extensive background in fundraising for organizations with mega-budgets (The Wharton School at UPenn) or minor budgets (Our Neighbor’s Table, a food pantry in Amesbury), Maureen’s main focus will be on helping the Power of Flowers Project grow and attain sustainability.

She says, “Through  philanthropy we infuse our values into the community by supporting organizations that uphold our values.  It is one of the great benefits and responsibilities of a democratic society.”

Non Profit Organizations help us create the world we dream about.  We can lead the world towards a better way to respond, namely kindness.

Maureen joined our organization effective February 25, 2019.  She immediately spent some time in the Workshop meeting volunteers and making her first POFP signature bouquet.  She has a proven ability to work with volunteers to reach goals while respecting the organization’s culture and mission.   

While speaking with her the other day, Maureen told me that she has a very high regard for our volunteers.  She’s amazed at the great, self-motivated group of take-charge individuals who have chosen to give their time to the POFP
