Solar Raises Funds for American Legion Post 228
This past November, Solar Cannabis Co. (Solar) partnered with American Legion Post 228 (Somerset, MA) with the mission to help raise funds and awareness for the Veterans support organization by retailing limited-edition camo snapback hats. Throughout the month, Solar successfully raised $1,500 to support the American Legion and its Veterans-based initiatives.
This is the second-consecutive year that Solar Cannabis Co. has supported the American Legion and its Veterans & Children Foundation. Last year, Solar successfully raised close to $3,000 with its month-long camo hat drive.
“We’re so pleased to have partnered with the American Legion again this year to help raise funds and awareness for our Veterans,” said Derek Gould, Director of Marketing & Communications at Solar. “In partnering with the American Legion, we are able to work directly with the local Legion Post here in Somerset, MA (American Legion Post 228), which will help us carry out a meaningful and impactful fundraiser and impact our surrounding communities.”
Since its creation in 1925, The American Legion Veterans & Children Foundation has delivered over $30 million in financial assistance for disabled veterans, military families and young people who lost parents in service to our nation. Income from the foundation investments is used to fund Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation programs and Temporary Financial Assistance, which provides funds to minor children of active duty or American Legion members.
Somerset-based Solar Cannabis Co. makes it a priority to support the MA community and beyond, choosing a different local charity to work with each month. It is their intention to continue to support the American Legion for years to come.
