California cannabis edibles manufacturer Plus Products has donated more than $60,000 to the San Francisco LGBT Center, according to a statement from the company. The donation comes from Plus Products’ sales of its Rainbow Sorbet limited edition gummies. The company’s donation totaled $60,937, which represents a $1 contribution to the SF LGBT Center for each package of the gummies sold.
Plus Products manufactures cannabis edibles at its licensed facility in Adelanto, California and is headquartered in San Mateo, in the San Francisco Bay area. Jake Heimark, the CEO and co-founder of the company, said that Plus Products is committed to giving back to the communities where it operates and sells its products.
“This limited edition and the accompanying donation is just a small way for PLUS to show support for the LGBTQ+ community,” said Heimark. “Our company was honored to have the opportunity to work with the SF LGBT Center this year. We care deeply about being a truly engaged partner and look forward to finding more opportunities to work together in the future.”
Serving the LGBTQ Community
The SF LGBT Center helps connect LGBTQ people to each other and opportunities and resources that strengthen and unify the diverse community. Dani Siragusa, the director of development at the SF LGBT Center, said that the donation was an example of the community support the non-profit organization needs to accomplish its mission.
“We’re proud to partner with local businesses that are committed to supporting the SF LGBT Center and building a better Bay Area,” said Siragusa. “This generous donation demonstrates PLUS’s investment in the LGBTQ+ community as well as the overwhelming enthusiasm of fellow Californians to work with us to create a more welcoming, equitable world.”
The SF LGBT Center provides community support including arts and cultural programs, housing, employment, and financial services. The center also offers resources and information for other members of the LGBTQ community including small business owners and queer youth.
Plus Products’ line of cannabis edibles is available at more than 300 licensed dispensaries and delivery services in California. The company also expects to expand its reach by entering the Nevada regulated cannabis market by the end of summer.
