Native Roots Cannabis Co. became a supporter of Brothers Redevelopment in 2021 with a three-year agreement to collaborate on volunteer projects and sponsorship opportunities related to the organizations’ shared goals of safe and affordable housing for low-income, elderly and disabled Colorado residents.
For the past few years, Colorado has been in the midst of an affordable housing crisis. A stable and affordable home is essential for people to thrive in their lives and uplift their communities. As a local business, Native Roots wants to see Coloradans thrive and communities uplifted. Supporting Brothers helps achieve that vision.
As a cannabis cultivator, manufacturer, and retailer, Native Roots employs nearly 500 Coloradans across the state. With this size workforce, Native Roots is no stranger to the hardship people face when housing challenges arise. Moving, rent increases, property sales, evictions, foreclosures, etc. can be stressful at best and devastating at worst. The services provided by Brothers ensure many Coloradans can maintain their homes, navigate the housing market, and age in place, all of which positively impact the state’s available housing stock.
Native Roots is sponsoring Brothers’ premiere annual fundraiser — the Local Social. The event supports the nonprofit’s Paint-A-Thon Program, a service that utilizes volunteers to paint the exterior of homes for low-income/older homeowners.
“Brothers Redevelopment is able to leverage financial donations to stretch the impact of each donor’s contribution. Native Roots is confident knowing that Brothers is a reputable and strategic beneficiary making a difference in the lives of everyday Coloradans,” said Native Roots’ Public Affairs Manager Liz Zukowski.
The Local Social falls on Friday, Sept. 9 this year at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale for $75 and include catered dinner by Biscuits and Berries, open bar access, door prize entry, and fun and games.
Native Roots has participated in the Paint-A-Thon two years in a row. In 2021, they enlisted the help of other cannabis operators in Colorado Springs to complete two home projects for local residents. In 2022, they completed a project for a homeowner in Denver’s Globeville neighborhood.
“Native Roots has 20 retail locations across the state; on the front range, in the mountains, and down south. It is important that we partner with nonprofit organizations that meet the needs of all our communities, and Brothers is able to respond where the need is greatest,” said Zukowski.
