‘Tis the season of giving back, and Humble Root strives to help our community in any way that we can. Humble Root was established to break the stereotypes of the marijuana industry by establishing our reputation of being educated and knowledgeable with our products and what is currently happening within our own community.
The Sacramento Food Bank is an organization close to our hearts. Their mission is “dedicated to assisting those in need by alleviating their immediate pain and problems, moving them towards more of a self-sufficient life”. Every quarter we volunteer our time by separating food and clothing for the families that use this service, as well as donating monetarily to this amazing organization.
We’ve also taken on a new mission by leveraging our Humble Family ☺. Too many families and friends have been affected by the wildfires here in California. When speaking with a few of the local Fire Departments, we asked how could we help, and/or be involved. They suggested we turn our attention to a special non-profit organization, The Firefighters Burn Institute. The Firefighters Burn Institute is a local burn facility; providing recovery programs for burn survivors. Although firefighters are a major part of the Firefighters Burn Institute, it also provides survivors with scholarships, programs to support other survivors, and provide fire prevention/educational services for the entire community. They also host a retreat for people affected, either emotionally or physically, by the wildfires to meet and build a network of support. It is because of donations like these, that they are allowed to offer this retreat free of charge.
For this holiday season, we are involved with a local non-profit called Next Move. Next Move supports over 500 families in the Sacramento area every day. It is the only shelter that offers private family rooms for single families. Their primary focus is to keep families together, since most local shelters separate single fathers from their daughters and mothers from their sons at night. Their program and services are designed to empower people to obtain housing stability and achieve overall economic well-being.
Next Move offers many direct services, such as housing, employment, healthcare, and education to its clients, enabling them to become self-sufficient. They feel it is their responsibility as part of this community, to give back by providing relief for those individuals, families and seniors who are in need of it. Humble Root takes pride in working with non-profits like Next Move who give back to the community that we love so much. The goal is to make the holidays special for everyone. Something as simple as taking care of everyday necessities, makes a world of difference to those may not be able to have access otherwise.
