WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A local pot club is pitching in to light up Christmas for needy kids. Toy after toy streams out of donation bins, but these are not coming from your regular toy drive.
A pot shop is shelling out plenty of gifts at the non-profit called A Million Ways to Care.
“What we do is find unique ways to get eh community involved,” said the organization’s president, Denisea Carey.
They want to help a million lives, and medicinal marijuana cardholders are getting them closer to their goal.
“It’s awesome they’re competing with each other. One person will ask what another person brought and they’ll say: “Oh, I gotta match that’ so they’re competing,” said Michael Melner, manager of River City Wellness.
River city wellness says they take pride in outreach..
“We’re just happy for their donation,” said Denisea.
So no matter who gave what, they key is that they gave.
The donated toys are going to separate military bases and three different hospitals.
