Fundraiser Supports "HeroGrown AirDrop" — CBD Products for Veterans and First Responders
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lafayette, Colo., (April 2, 2019) – urban-gro, Inc., a leading agricultural solution and technology company that works with commercial cannabis cultivators around the world, announced that it will be co-hosting Network For Change on Tuesday, April 2 from 5pm to 8pm to benefit HeroGrown, a veteran-founded, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing direct assistance to thousands of veterans and first responders. The event will be co-hosted by Arborjet and take place in the panoramic rooftop setting at the SpringHill Suites by Marriott Las Vegas Convention Center in conjunction with the Cannabis Business Times Cannabis Conference.
Funds raised at the event will have a critical impact in the funding of HeroGrown’s signature program: HeroGrown AirDrop. The HeroGrown AirDrop program provides free CBD products to thousands of veterans and first responders in all fifty states—on average $50,000 per month.
Brad Nattrass, CEO of urban-gro, said, “The service of our nation’s veterans and first responders plays essential roles in the lives of Americans. Through this fundraiser, we wish to repay the sacrifices that they and their families make every day on our behalf. urban-gro is committed and exceptionally proud to support the work of HeroGrown, and we look forward to joining other members of the cannabis community at this great event.”
Roger Martin, a proud U.S. Army veteran and Executive Director of HeroGrown said, “The HeroGrown AirDrop program gives veterans and first responders free access to CBD products to help alleviate issues associated with PTSD, anxiety and depression. HeroGrown is on the forefront of suicide prevention for veterans and first responders, and the support of urban-gro and other members of the cannabis community plays a direct role in helping to fund this critical healthcare access point.”
According to national statistics, the resource and mental health needs of returning veterans are significant. Veterans are at two or four times higher risk of major depression and eight times higher risk of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), while only half of veterans seeking mental health treatment receive minimally adequate care.
