Trulieve prides itself on being active in the communities we live and work in. With the many challenges 2020 has brought for all of us, access to necessary educational supplies for our children should not one of them. That is why this year Trulieve partnered with United Way of the Big Bend to coordinate and host a back-to-school drive during the week of August 17-23. Trulieve employees across Leon, Gadsden, and Jefferson counties donated school supplies to go to students in need across the Big Bend. Donations were collected internally across local Trulieve facilities and will benefit approximately 2,000 students in the Big Bend.
With logistics coordinated by the United Way of the Big Bend, the donation joins the more than 150 computers Trulieve has donated to non-profits across the state. The drive was coordinated 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 in our nearby communities.
As the state’s leading medical cannabis provider, Trulieve presently employs approximately 3,400 employees, with more than 1,000 residing throughout Northwest Florida. We’ve been fortunate to call Leon, Gadsden, and Jefferson counties home for many years with multiple cultivation and processing facilities. We continue to be dedicated to investing in the communities that have been so supportive to us. Compassionate care is more than a core value; it’s what drives us and ensuring that our local communities have the resources they need to succeed is a huge part of that.
With school back in session we want to extend a big thank you to all our employees who donated to the United Way campaign and continue to support our communities.
