GIVE A LITTLE, GET A LITTLE!
4/20 is usually the busiest industry holiday for the medical marijuana market. Now with the new adult market in Arizona, we anticipate this years’ 4/20 to be the biggest one yet. Normally 420 is simply filled with discounts and giveaways, but this year Copia/Ogeez and Oasis Cannabis took a different approach in order to give back to the community in the form of a blood drive.
Currently, Copia/Ogeez is the only medical marijuana company in the nation that has an official partnership with the American Red Cross to support blood donations and host onsite drives. Not only are blood donations in extremely high demand right now, but donating blood is personally important to both of our companies. In 2017, the owner of Copia/OGeez – Peggy Noonan – was diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia. Since her diagnosis, Copia/OGeez has partnered with numerous companies to host blood drives and raise awareness for Peggy’s condition. #TeamPeggy
Oasis Cannabis AZ is honored to be partnering with the American Red Cross and Copia/OGeez to extend the opportunity to give back to all of its patients and customers. Together, we can save lives and fight against illnesses like COVID-19, leukemia and many others.
Time: 9am – 3pm
Location: Oasis Cannabis | North Chandler
