A Colorado dispensary is raising funds for people affected by the recent wildfires.
Conscious Alliance is a nonprofit focused on ending hunger and empowering young people.
The Boulder County fires have burned hundreds of homes and forced tens of thousands of people in nearby towns to evacuate.
Fresh Baked says it will be accepting donations of money, canned food, and specific clothing items for Conscious Alliance to distribute to community members in need.
Specific clothing items include socks, underwear, winter hats, coats, and gloves.
People who donate $20 or more, ten or more canned or non-perishable food items, or three pieces of new clothing will receive a $5 discount on their next Fresh Baked purchase.
“Fresh Baked is built on a sense of community—we make it our mission to do everything we can to give back & support the community that has been so supportive of us,” says Fresh Baked HR Director Tif Jasnau. “We will continue to work with groups like Conscious Alliance to raise awareness for those in need.”
Conscious Alliance works with artists, musicians, food makers, and others to inspire young people to make a difference in their community by providing food and other essentials to communities and individuals in need.
Fresh Baked started in 2010 when only medical cannabis was legal in Colorado.
When the state legalized adult-use cannabis in 2014, Fresh Baked made adjustments in accordance with new laws.
Anyone interested in donating to the Fresh Baked and Conscious Alliance donation drive can view the website for more information or visit the dispensary at 2535 Pearl Street, Boulder CO, 80302, 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
