I’ve posted previously about my positive experience with Henry’s Original half-gram pre-rolled joints. I came across an article in HIGH TIMES magazine from last week about the near-apocalyptic juggernaut of wildfires burning in Northern California and Henry’s part in supporting victims by partnering with other groups to raise money. Henry’s has placed donation boxes in dispensaries throughout Northern and Southern California in support of North Coast Opportunities (NCO) Wildfire Relief Fund and their efforts to help those who’ve suffered losses. You can help by tossing whatever you can afford into one of these donation boxes on the way out of the dispensary on your next run.
Per High Times:
…Henry’s Original, a cannabis company headquartered in Northern California, just announced a new program to help in the relief efforts.
According to company representatives, Henry’s Original has teamed up with a handful of other groups to help people affected by the fire. The company is now working with tökr, The Pottery, The Weed, and Cannary West dispensaries to raise money and other resources for fire victims.
“Henry’s was born in Mendocino County, and we’ve been in the heart of Mendocino for years,” Henry’s Original Head of Marketing Steve Miller told High Times. “Every year, it seems like these fires are becoming more and more the norm, and it seems like relief efforts often fall on the people who have been affected the most. So we wanted to help out as best we can.”
To that end, there are now donation boxes at each dispensary location. Miller said the most important things to donate at this point are cash, gas gift cards, and grocery gift cards.
All donations raised by Henry’s Original and its partners will be channeled to the North Coast Opportunities (NCO) Wildfire Relief Fund. From there, NCO will distribute the money to those affected by the fires.
“We wanted to do more of a grassroots effort,” Miller said. “Throughout Southern California, we’ve been collecting cash, gas gift cards, and grocery gift cards. In Northern California, where we have around 70 employees, we’ve organized volunteer efforts to help locally.”
If you want to pitch in and you live in Southern California, you can simply head to a participating dispensary location. And if you live outside of California, you can still help out. Henry’s Original is encouraging folks to visit NCO’s website, where you can learn about relief efforts and make a donation.
