Christmas angels came from all corners of the town of Hope during the holiday season.
“We actually talked to a few staff members this year and they had mentioned that we should probably start helping out in the community. And there’s a lot of families that could use the help,” said Nicole Lucarino at Canna Farms.
The medical marijuana producer, which employs 55 people in Hope, decided to donate $600 worth of Save On Foods grocery cards to a local food hamper program. Organized by Crystal Sedore, the Hope Christmas Angels Program delivered hampers to 41 families this year with the help of over 65 local donors and volunteers.
Jeff Kohlman found Sedore’s initiative online and brought it to the attention of his colleagues at Canna Farms. “It was a very last minute decision, for sure, but next year we definitely want to do more donating and volunteering,” said co-worker Ally Stickle.
