Bloom Farms™, a San Francisco based medical cannabis company, has partnered with Magnolia Wellness, an Oakland dispensary, and raised $25,000 this past holiday season for Calaveras County Butte fire relief efforts.
On Friday, March 4, Bloom Farms Director Michael Ray made the donation at The Resource Connection in San Andreas to the following organizations focused on post-event recovery and supporting affiliated local nonprofits:
• Mountain Ranch Fire Relief Fund ($10,000 to support individual and emergency family needs)
• CalaverasGROWN ($5,000 to support soil erosion prevention efforts)
• Mountain Ranch Resource Center ($5,000 to support local community feeding program)
• The Resource Connection ($5,000 to support countywide food insecurity efforts)
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, many people in rural Calaveras County still need help.
Bloom Farms and Magnolia Wellness worked together to raise $25,000 this past holiday season for fire relief. Bloom Farms provided its HIGHLIGHTER™ cannabis vapor pens to Magnolia Wellness free of charge.
