Thank you for Helping us Beat our Face-shield Goal!
This year 420 was a little different. Not just for us at Evergreen Market, but across the cannabis industry. Of course, there were sales. There was also consistent urging to not crowd stores, respect social distancing, and keep safety the priority. Furthermore, as a company we made the decision to focus on giving back to the healthcare workers on the frontline. We dedicated a portion of proceeds from sales over 420 weekend to purchase medical face-shields for healthcare workers. While they are doing the most to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, they are also directly in harm’s way. Personal protective equipment (PPE) for doctors and nurses have steadily become harder to find.
Our goal was to purchase 100 medical face-shields from armorshield.org to donate by using a part of sales from 4/17/2020 – 4/20/2020 . Thanks to our amazing customers, we were able to beat our goal and distribute 170 in total.
Armorshield.org is an incredible company that was manufacturing car parts in Bellevue until Coronavirus hit. As the need for PPE outgrew supply, they were able to work with medical professionals to design a face-shield that protects from exposure.
Valley Medical Center, Harrison Medical Center, Multicare Good Samaritan, and St. Elizabeth Hospital have all received face-shields, along with Transpara Health who is rolling out COVID-19 testing to all their locations to help with demand.
We would like to say a huge thank you to anyone who stopped in to support our efforts in this. We hope you had an excellent (and safe) 420, knowing that your purchase helped out during these difficult times.
And wash your hands!
