Each of Trulieve's 31 stores statewide will host drives to collect supplies for areas hardest hit by the catastrophic storm
MIDWAY, FL, Sept. 5, 2019 /CNW/ - Trulieve Cannabis Corp. ("Trulieve" or the "Company") (CSE: TRUL) (OTCQX: TCNNF), a leading and top-performing cannabis company in the United States, today announced that in response to the catastrophic damage left behind by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas and the southeastern US seaboard, the company has launched a statewide relief effort to help the affected areas as they recover from the storm's wake.
Through its established statewide distribution system, Trulieve will be accepting donations of necessary and critical supplies at each of their 31 Florida locations.

These items will be distributed directly to those in need in partnership with third-party relief organizations.
"After experiencing Michael and seeing the devastation left behind in our own state last year, we understand all too well the need that people affected by Dorian are facing. Our communities were eager to step up last year to help us rebuild and we are fortunate to be able to help organize a collection drive to help efforts again this year," said Trulieve CEO Kim Rivers. "Our statewide distribution system is in place and will be collecting supplies from each store, which will be delivered to the communities in need through local relief organizations. We aim to help as many people affected by Hurricane Dorian as possible."
