TORONTO, May 4, 2020 /CNW/ - 180 Smoke ("180 Smoke" or the "Company"), a dominant online and retail Canadian vape company with extensive operations in the Greater Toronto Area announced today that it had partnered with Sistering, a women's multi-service community support agency in Toronto. As a part of the partnership, the Company will donate 1,000 bottles of hand sanitizer to the agency towards ensuring that they are able to continue serving and protecting the local community. 180 Smoke will also be providing hand sanitizers to its own front-line and warehouse employees as a thank you for their resilience and perseverance during this trying time; and to its e-commerce customers while supplies last in recognition of their support and continued patronage.
"COVID-19 has impacted the lives of all citizens in the GTA in various manners over the past few weeks and we have witnessed local champions step forward to assist those in need whether personally or publicly. At 180 Smoke, the communities that we work in form the heart of our business. Hence, our management team decided to make a contribution where it was most needed. Sistering is a local agency working the frontlines to support a community of marginalized, at-risk, socially isolated women who are either homeless or living in precarious situations. Our contribution is small but we hope that it will support the Sistering team in their essential work during this unprecedented time", remarked Liam Wucher, Retail Director at 180 Smoke.
