Organic Remedies Honors U.S. Veterans Laid to Rest at Pennsylvania Military Cemeteries

Company’s Wreaths Across America Fundraising Campaign Generates Sponsorship of More Than 3,700 Wreaths

CARLISLE, Pa., Dec. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Organic Remedies, a medical marijuana cultivation and research organization based in south central Pennsylvania, raised more than $32,000 in support of Wreaths Across America, a national nonprofit that purchases live Remembrance wreaths for veterans laid to rest at national and state military cemeteries. The funds raised sponsored more than 3,700 wreaths for veterans’ graves at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, National Cemetery of the Alleghenies, and Philadelphia National Cemetery.

The company’s WAA six-week fundraising campaign included a strong grassroots effort through letters and calls to donors and cash donations collected at Organic Remedies’ dispensaries across the state. In addition, Organic Remedies contributed a portion of the proceeds of select OR brand products, available in medical marijuana dispensaries across PA.

“I am so proud of our entire OR team for getting behind this noble cause,” said Organic Remedies CEO Mark Toigo. “We understand the tremendous sacrifice our veterans have made to preserve our freedom. It is heartwarming to see the passion we all have to honor and remember those who gave their lives for our country. We also want to extend our sincere gratitude to our vendor partners, grower/processor partners, and especially our loyal patients for their overwhelming support throughout this campaign.”

Not only did Organic Remedies support WAA through fundraising efforts, but also through encouraging employees and patients to attend National Wreaths Across America Day, Sat. Dec. 16, to place Remembrance wreaths on the graves of veterans at the three cemeteries. Through OR’s efforts, 334 volunteers registered through the company’s website to attend the ceremony and lay wreaths on veterans’ graves. When each wreath is placed, the service member’s name is said out loud, ensuring their memory lives on.
