When it comes to giving back to the local community, Sacramento-based Perfect Union is no ordinary cannabis shop. It treats communities surrounding its dispensaries as family and strives to support different organizations each month. From collecting toys for the UC Davis Children’s Hospitals Annual Toy Drive to hosting puppy adoption days for local shelters, Perfect Union goes beyond cannabis organizations to make a difference in all facets of its community.
“Perfect Union’s ability to affect positive change with public officials and community leaders is second to none in the cannabis industry,” says Ryan Miller, a Perfect Union partner and founder of Operation EVAC (Educating Veterans About Cannabis). “Where others give lip service, Perfect Union walks the walk to create lasting partnerships and monetary investments–even dedicated staff volunteer days–to deliver tangible benefits in the communities they serve.”
These dedicated staff volunteer days have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic, but many still happen at venues across the city. Each month, Perfect Union hosts a free breakfast in Sacramento’s Friendship Park for those in need, though it’s currently a drop-off program due to social distancing concerns.
Team members also serve a monthly breakfast at the Wellspring Women’s Center, which provides nutrition and safety net resources to women and children in the Sacramento area.
Perfect Union’s community outreach coordinator also partnered with Weed for Warriors and the Bureau of Cannabis Control to donate cannabis products to veterans seeking holistic rehabilitation.
