MÜV Cannabis Dispensaries in Florida Gives Back… Join Us!
The holiday season is a time for giving. Usually kicked off on Thanksgiving, it’s the time of year where giving something as simple as a smile to a stranger, volunteer your time to organizations in need, or give a donation to a charity you believe in. As the Giving Tuesday organization so aptly notes: “being generous is a way to fight for the causes you care about.”
The medical marijuana industry is no exception to this giving season. MÜV™ began ours early with Veterans Day, where your purchases directly contributed to a donation to two phenomenal organizations focused on improving the lives of veterans and improving their access to medical cannabis: Grateful Veteran and Veterans for Collaboration Foundation.
We’re excited to announce we are continuing the trend on December 1 with Giving Tuesday and December 1-15 with our Holiday Food Drive.
JoshProvides Epilepsy Assistance Foundation is a Sarasota-based nonprofit foundation founded in 2008 in memory of Joshua Chapnick. Josh was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 16 years old and passed from a fatal seizure just before turning 29. Josh was the Vice President of Community Service for his fraternity while attending college and set the record for most projects managed in that role, working closely with Big Brothers Big Sisters and the local soup kitchen. His family began the foundation in his memory, to continue his legacy of giving.
Through the foundation, his legacy truly does continue. JoshProvides not only provides support and resources to the estimated 400,000+ Floridians that have received an epilepsy diagnosis in the state, but helps to fund important research at renowned institutions such as the Cleveland Clinic Epilepsy Center.
In honor of Josh and his legacy, MÜV will be donating a portion of the proceeds earned on Giving Tuesday, December 1st, to JoshProvides.
But our giving season will not stop there.
Holiday Food Drive
According to Feeding America, the need for food donations has never been higher. The Household Food Insecurity in the United States report conducted by the USDA found over 35 million Americans experienced hunger last year. Due to COVID-19, that number may increase to upwards of 50 million people in 2020 – including 17 million children. That’s a staggering (and rather sad) statistic.
Ü can help a family in need this year, and earn savings, too. MÜV has partnered with 14 organizations across the state of Florida to collect nonperishable food for Floridians. For every donation made from Dec. 1-15, we are giving you a 10% stackable discount (patients are eligible for one discount per day).
