Solar and Clear Path for Veterans New England Announce Partnership During November and Beyond
Massachusetts-based Cannabis Manufacturer Partners with New England Veterans Advocacy Organization to Help Raise Awareness and Support
Solar Therapeutics (Solar) – America’s only energy-independent cannabis company – today announced its partnership with Clear Path for Veterans New England (CP4VNE) in efforts to help raise visibility and deliver support for its wellness-based Veterans’ Community Center located in Devens, MA.
“Solar and CP4VNE share a common belief about how we need to aid and assist our Veterans throughout all stages of their reintegration into civilian life,” said Ed Dow, CEO of Solar. “We’re beyond excited to partner with Clear Path for Veterans New England. We will do everything in our power to inspire our network and community to support Clear Path’s amazing mission and programs.”
CP4VNE mission is built on providing a safe and supportive community for Veterans to access the assistance they need to successfully reintegrate into civilian life. Rather than disjointing these resources into different locations, CP4VNE consolidates its services onto its campus, which is spread throughout Fort Devens. Their newly-renovated, (22,000 sq ft) former Army headquarters/hospital is an epicenter comprising programs that enable Veterans the opportunity to interact with their fellow servicemen and women. While on the campus, service members have access to programs including, service dog training and pairing, peer-to-peer mentoring, workforce redevelopment, yoga, meditation and fitness classes, family aid and support networks, as well as other various social activities and events.
“This is an exciting time for us,” said Donna Bulger, Executive Director & Vice President at Clear Path for Veterans New England. “It takes a united effort to offer the proper care for our servicemen and women and we’re proud to support all of those who have proudly served our country. Partnering with an organization such as Solar allows us to continue connecting our Veterans with the resources they need to thrive in civilian life.”
To kick off the partnership, Solar will be retailing custom-branded CP4VNE camouflage apparel at its Somerset dispensary and online store. All proceeds from sales will go directly to Clear Path to help support its wellness center, as well as other initiatives planned for 2020 and beyond. In addition, Solar will be participating in a Thanksgiving food drive where customers can drop off food items, gift cards and monetary donations that will provide local Veterans (and their families) meals for the holidays.
