CHICAGO and RENO, Nev., Dec. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Green Thumb Industries Inc. (GTI) (CSE: GTII) (OTCQX: GTBIF), a leading national cannabis consumer packaged goods company and owner of Rise dispensaries, today announced the opening of Rise Reno, the Company’s 67th store nationwide. Profits from the first day of sales will be donated to Helping our Brothers and Sisters (HOBS) which provides mentoring and short-term financial assistance to U.S. combat Veterans with an emphasis on those living with PTSD and other chronic issues, as well as LGBTQ Veterans denied recognition and support due to their sexual orientation.
“Rise Reno marks our 67th store in the nation and our first Rise store in the Biggest Little City in the World,” said Green Thumb Founder and Chief Executive Officer Ben Kovler. “We are proud to support HOBS, a local organization that is doing crucial work to aid our Veterans living with PTSD, including our LGBTQ Veterans who have been wrongly denied support. We all owe our Veterans so much and we are happy to make this contribution, while introducing more consumers and tourists alike to the Rise experience.”
Dr. Marvin Carter, Founder of HOBS said: “We appreciate the support of Green Thumb and other community minded businesses to ensure the care of our country’s military Veterans. This support means a lot in showing us that we are not alone in facing the challenges of combat, which in many cases creates a lifetime of challenges.”
