Cannabis retailer Perfect Union recently made a donation to support Tehama County’s senior residents.
The company presented $2,250 to the Tehama County Senior Nutrition Program’s Adopt-A-Senior program, which will cover a year’s worth of nutritious meals for a senior in the program, as well as companionship and safety checks.
Perfect Union is hoping to expand into the Red Bluff community and is waiting for the City Council to finalize its ordinance and process. In the meantime, the company is moving forward with community engagement plans, including donations and partnerships with local organizations.
“Community is family, so we’re proud to help ensure local seniors receive healthy meals and companionship,” said David Spradlin, CEO. “Demonstrating kindness, practicing compassionate care and investing in the communities we serve are cornerstones of Perfect Union’s mission and culture, and we look forward to future engagements that help strengthen Tehama County.”
The Senior Nutrition program, recently renamed Healthy Connections, delivers meals to roughly 90 seniors a day, covering some 150 miles in the process. Seniors age 60 and older are eligible, and to be eligible for home delivery, the senior must no longer be capable of driving.
“Perfect Union’s generous donation will help us better support seniors in Tehama County,” said David Madrigal, program manager. “While the program focuses on delivering healthy meals, these important visits also help local seniors cope with isolation and loss of independence, which along with hunger, represent the biggest threats to aging.”
