Level Up, a high-end medical marijuana dispensary in Scottsdale that is veteran-owned, has actually found a method to return to a section of their patients that they hold really near and dear to their hearts. In collaboration with Packages From Home, the dispensary has started a charity drive called “Munchies for the Armed force” and is asking its clients to contribute Pop-Tarts to troops serving overseas.
Why Pop-Tarts? They might be prevalent to civilians, but to those serving overseas, Pop-Tarts are a hot commodity. According to the nonprofit Packages From House, Pop-Tarts are the most asked for item in care plans for troops.
Packages From House’s objective is to send out care and comfort bundles to deployed American military in addition to help with activities that elevate morale of all veterans.
“When I was in Saudi Arabia I sat out in the desert without any possibility of getting anything from home,” stated Mike, a medical marijuana patient and Marine Corps veteran. “Now the men have access to support from home that just wasn’t offered prior to. It reminds the people of why they exist and why they are compromising a lot for America’s freedom.”
“It’s great to have folks like Level Up backing up us (Bundles From House) who have the ability to host drives for contributions and shipping fees, particularly when they are taking the top requested product and are permitting us to send them to places all around the world where Pop-Tarts are not available,” stated Bundles From House. “It’s a way to advise them that they are enjoyed, supported and their work will not go undetected or forgotten.”
The donation started mid-February and, to this day, Level Up has offered over 178 boxes of Pop-Tarts, gathering over $890. Clients have actually even begun generating their own boxes of Pop-Tarts for contribution at Level Up.
Level Up has actually decided to extend Munchies for the Armed force through the end of April 2018. Persons thinking about supporting the soldiers can come by Level Up Scottsdale or see packagesfromhome.org or levelupscottsdale.com.
