DEC 11, 2015 (San Francisco, CA) Bloom Farms™, a San Francisco based medical cannabis company, is partnering with Magnolia Wellness, an Oakland dispensary, to raise $25,000 this holiday season for fire relief efforts. The donation will go to the Calaveras Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund focused on post-event recovery and supporting affiliated local nonprofits.
Michael Ray is the Director of Bloom Farms, with over a decade of experience in the cannabis industry. “All of us at Bloom Farms are committed to giving something amazing back. I grew up in Calaveras County and we lost our family home like so many others. Helping our neighbors feels like the right thing to do,” stated Ray. “Over time, my family will rebuild the farm and I hope this support will, in some small way, help our neighbors do so too.”
The Valley and Butte fires of 2015 were two of the most destructive blazes in California history and were declared federal disasters by President Obama. Californians are already forgetting the devastation created by the fires, but with the cold, wet winter months upon us, many people in rural Calaveras County still need help. Bloom Farms and Magnolia Wellness will work together to raise $25,000 this holiday season for fire relief. Bloom Farms will provide its Highlighter vape pens to Magnolia Wellness free of charge, and the revenue generated by those pens’ sales will go to Calaveras Community Foundation’s Disaster Relief Fund.
“I am grateful to Magnolia Wellness and their new executive director Debby Goldsberry for helping us roll out this initiative. The residents of Calaveras County need assistance now more than ever,” said Ray. “The Calaveras Community Foundation is a great organization and we are thrilled to be able to get some much-needed funds into the right hands.”
