LOS ANGELES – STIIIZY, the #1 cannabis retailer in California and flagship brand of Shryne Group Inc., presents its “Joint Efforts” social impact program during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Founded during the pandemic last year, Joint Efforts is a series of volunteer initiatives that encourage and allow Shryne Group employees to give back to the greater community. As one of the most engaged cannabis companies in the industry, Shryne Group is committed to doing good and empowering and inspiring others to do even more.
“Cannabis connects to community,” said Tak Sato, President of Shryne Group Inc., parent company of STIIIZY. “Through Joint Efforts, we’re able to unite the community and work together as agents of change, whether through programming, fundraising, or really anything we can do to support underserved and underrepresented individuals and organizations in our neighborhoods.”
During the month of May, Shryne Group is highlighting AAPI-owned businesses and supporting the greater AAPI community through various programming. One such campaign “Love is Pho Real” turns the spotlight on AAPI-owned restaurants and small businesses, then shares their offerings with community members in need. In L.A., for example, Shryne Group is partnering with Little Tokyo Florist and distributing flowers to seniors at the Sakura Garden assisted living center. In the Bay Area, the company is feeding seniors and families at the West Bay Pilipino Multiservice Center and partnering with United Playaz to bring programming and services for underserved and at-risk youth in the area.
Committed to driving impactful change in the community, Joint Efforts will continue throughout the year and benefit multiple causes throughout the state and beyond. Next month, Shryne Group will partner with the Dream Awake Foundation to create social impact across the border, sending food, toys and other supplies in need to orphanages in Mexico. Past Joint Efforts include STIIIZY From the Heart delivering meals and toiletries to seniors in San Francisco, Earth Day volunteer service programming with the Compton Community Garden, Women’s History Month partnerships with the Downtown Women’s Center, Weed for Warriors medical cannabis donations, and more.
