Since opening its doors in June of 2022, Flower & Soul has been an active part of Halifax and its surrounding communities, with various volunteer, fundraising and sponsored events.
In the summer of 2022, Flower & Soul sponsored the Halifax Fourth of July fireworks which had an amazing turn out and included a variety of different food vendors. Families from Halifax and the surrounding communities, adults and children alike, were able to enjoy the impressive and awe inspiring display of fireworks. Seeing the joy on the children’s faces, and hearing the oohhs and aahhs with each explosion of color, made sponsoring this event all the more worthwhile and enabled us to commit to sponsoring the event for the next five years.
This past August, we were the proud sponsor of our own Flower & Soul team member, Jennifer, who drove in the demolition derby at the Marshfield Fair. The car spent time in front of the dispensary and patrons were able to sign the car and write good luck messages! The day of the event, Jennifer won her heat race and placed 2nd in the feature event. Keep your eye out for the Flower & Soul sponsored car smashing and crashing at the Marshfield Fair next August!
We collaborated with Halifax’s beautification committee on several clean-up projects cleaning and clearing litter near and around the Halifax Elementary School and on Route 106 in high traffic areas.
In December of 2022, Flower & Soul partnered with Toys for Tots and donated over 100 toys that benefited the East Bridgewater HUGS program. “The mission of HUGS is to provide support for local families in need, especially during the holiday season.” The HUGS program was able to assist over 110 families in the East Bridgewater area that were in need this holiday season.
Some additional community donations Flower & Soul made this year were to the Veterans organization, and the Halifax police to donate a bicycle for their SWAT team.
We support and encourage local businesses by having a dedicated location in the dispensary for local business owners to post their business cards, as well as shopping locally with businesses such as Freshly Baked.
Here at Flower & Soul we care deeply about our community and encourage our employees to volunteer 8 hours of community service each year. We enjoy giving back and being a dynamic part of something greater than ourselves. If there is a local charity, organization, or fundraiser that is near and dear to your heart, we are open to suggestions of where we can volunteer our time in 2023.
