We always knew that our Higher Leaf family was awesome, but even we weren’t prepared for your generous and giving hearts during our Household Goods Donation Drive for Attain Housing! You honestly blew us away and helped a fantastic Kirkland area nonprofit that has been assisting homeless families to build strength and get a new start since 1989. Attain Housing’s mission is to bring our community together to partner with homeless families by providing affordable housing and empowering them with practical case management and hope. We are beyond thrilled to have partnered with them for this drive.
A Bounty of Donations
Over the course of the month, we collected a jaw-dropping amount of much-needed items, including 30 bottles of shampoo/conditioner, 10 bottles of hand soap, 10 bottles of dish soap and laundry detergent, 25 bottles of lotion, 20 deodorants, 30 tubes of toothpaste, feminine supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, toothbrushes, school supplies, and so much more! You truly went above and beyond this year, fam. We’re proud to help serve such an open-hearted community.
“We were absolutely thrilled by the number of customers who participated in our Household Goods Drive this year,” said Lizzie Maslen, Higher Leaf HR Specialist, and Master Trainer. “We had well over 50 customers donate throughout the drive, and the Attain Housing team was shocked and delighted by the volume of donations we collected. There was a real moment of happy concern when we didn't know if everything would fit in the little Mazda hatchback that came to pick everything up, but we made it work. Customers even jumped in to help load too! It was such an uplifting success that we are already looking forward to next year!”
How Else You Can Help
The Household Goods Drive was a stunning success, but Attain Housing can always use more helping hands. They’d love people to pitch in with everything from office work, event help, to cooking up some scrumptious dishes. Check out their volunteering page to see how else you can help out this fantastic organization.
At Higher Leaf, we love what we do, and we love that we get to use our passion for cannabis to give back to our community. To stock up on supplies or to have a chat with our friendly budtenders, stop by our Kirkland or Bellevue weed shops to load up on The Eastside's Best Bud. We can't wait to see you!
