With the aim of leveraging our essential business status, we set out to find ways to support and unite the communities we serve. Buddies Brand wanted to offer some assistance to those most vulnerable from the health risks of COVID-19 and those burdened by the economic consequences of social distancing.
“Vulnerable seniors are at the greatest risk amid COVID-19”. The Meals on Wheels COVID-19 Response Fund sets out, “to ensure local communities have what they need to continue to deliver a vital lifeline of resources to our most at-risk Americans. On the front lines each and every day, they’re focusing on delivering everything they can to help keep older Americans safe and nourished in communities across the country.
The goal of the James Beard Relief Fund is to provide, “critical financial assistance to small, independent restaurants that, due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) national disaster, have an immediate need for funds to pay set operating expenses and keep from going out of business.” Direct assistance to local businesses will help ensure the long term health of our economy and a quicker bounce back to normalcy for our community overall.
We’re thankful for the opportunity to leverage our essential status as a cannabis industry manufacturer to give back. We’re looking forward to the next Buddies Cares Initiative: Pride.
Friends. Family. Buddies.
