At Greenleaf Wellness, we feel that a big part of what makes running a local business so special is our connection to the community. It’s important to nourish that connection by selling locally-manufactured goods, making sure that our products are safe and of high quality before making them accessible to our customers, and, sometimes, by supporting local institutions that make our community a better place.
Today, we’re proud to say that for the second time since breaking ground, Greenleaf is partnering with a local organization to lend a helping hand to Nevadans in need.
This October, Greenleaf Wellness is partnering with Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run to help raise money for women in treatment for suffering from breast cancer or gynecological complications. For every purchase made at our store, we’ll donate $2 to help cover the everyday expenses of Northern Nevada women—offering financial relief to local women in treatment so that they can focus on what’s most important: overcoming their health challenges and enjoying a smooth recovery.
Last year, our Moms on the Run fundraiser was a landmark success. We helped Pinocchio’s Moms on the Run to raise $18,000 in funds—and demonstrated that dispensaries can play an integral role in taking direct action to serve their communities by being one of the first in the region to donate our proceeds to a local nonprofit.
This year, we’re hoping to build on last year’s product—and donate even more. With the help of the community, it is our goal to raise over $20,000 for local women. These critically important funds will help over 50 local patients a month get through their lives a little more easily by eliminating their worry about everyday living expenses.
Strong communities are built on compassion, cooperation and support—let’s work together to bring meaningful relief to those in our community who need it the most. We can’t wait to make this one of Moms on the Run’s best fundraising years yet.Back to blog
