Many families and individuals find themselves financially strapped during the holidays, but for those who encounter unexpected hurdles, the season can be more stressful than joyous. When you add in the tightening economy, elimination of some federal assistance programs, and the increased costs of housing, groceries, energy, and more, the holidays seem like they will be even more stressful this year as compared to previous years.
In keeping with its commitment to give back to the communities it serves, Mint Cannabis in Phoenix, Arizona is hoping to make the holidays a bit brighter for local families who can benefit from a little boost.
This Tuesday, Dec. 20, Wednesday, Dec. 21, and Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022, Mint Cannabis CEO Eivan Shahara and COO Raul Molina will be channeling a certain jolly old elf by spreading holiday cheer to deserving local families who could use a little extra joy this year. Each family that receives a surprise visit will receive $1,000 in cash.
This third-annual “Adopt-a-Family” effort is near and dear to Shahara and Molina. Each of their families experienced tough times when they were growing up, so they have made it their mission to give back whenever the opportunity arises. In addition to the countless hours that Mint employees volunteer in their local communities, the Mint has donated more than $3 million locally to those in need since its founding in 2017.
