California Cannabis Industry Assoc. Raises Money For Two Charities

The COVID-19 pandemic has hit all corners of the country and globe. From a case and death count that is still growing to a devastated economy, to all of us overusing the term “social distancing,” no one has been left unaffected. But there’s an unspoken cost to the pandemic as well. Due to the unprecedented economic and unemployment tailspin, many non-profit organizations need our resources more than ever.

The California Cannabis Industry Association is taking steps to address this urgent need by launching the 420 Cannabis Cares Fundraiser. In light of this unprecedented public health crisis, CCIA and the cannabis community is meeting this moment by raising contributions to aid in combating COVID-19 and keeping communities safe.

CCIA organized a 4/20 fundraiser to help two amazing organizations on the front lines of the COVID-19 crisis, Meals on Wheels & California Partnership to End Domestic Violence. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, CCIA will split the donations down the middle and write two separate checks out to the corresponding nonprofits

The aim is to raise a relatively modest $5,000 for two exemplary organizations. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, CCIA will be dividing the money 50/50 and donating all proceeds directly to the following two groups:

The California Partnership to End Domestic Violence: CPEDV is California’s recognized domestic violence coalition. For nearly 40 years, the organization has represented the efforts of countless partnership advocates and organizations on the state and national levels. Through the organization’s direct action, over 200 pieces of legislation related to ending domestic violence have been enacted or approved.

Meals on Wheels California: MoW is at the fore of providing nutritious meals for some of the state’s most impacted communities. Particularly, senior citizens who are already isolated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization works with membership groups throughout the Golden State to ensure that meals are delivered to seniors.
