TALLAHASSEE, Fla., June 30, 2020 /CNW/ -PRESS RELEASE- Trulieve Cannabis
Corp announced this week the continuation of dedicated investments in majority-minority
communities by donating over 130 computers to local non-profits and
organizations throughout the months of May and June. The computers were donated
as part of Trulieve’s ongoing diversity, equity and inclusion efforts to
support student education and provide valuable resources to local majority
minority communities statewide, especially those hardest hit by COVID-19.
Partner organizations include the Northwest Neighborhood Community Center, which
hired teachers to help students with schoolwork during coronavirus; United
Against Poverty in Orlando; Lodging and Hospitality Association of Volusia
County to distribute to various schools throughout the community; and the
Junior League of Greater Lakeland, which distributed to smaller non-profits
throughout Lakeland. These computers join the 20 donated in early March to
Griffin Middle School in Tallahassee, benefitting the school’s Pre-Information
Technology Program, bringing the total donated this year to 155.
« As a company, we’ve always focused on giving back, supporting, and
investing in the majority minority communities we call home. Coronavirus has
affected everyone – not only patients, but students and seniors alike. Our goal
is to ensure that as many of our neighbors as possible have the resources they
need to succeed, » said Valda Coryat, Trulieve’s chief marketing officer. « Partnering with
local organizations allows us to connect with these communities across the
state and provide resources that they might otherwise not have had access to.
We’re always looking for ways to further invest in the spaces we move into and
are excited to continue our social responsibility efforts. »
