Crohn’s + Colitis Foundation
Philanthropy Team, Torrey’s Asst. Marketing Director, Shelby has decided to make a difference in the fight against Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. On July 15, 2018, she will participate in the Napa-to-Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon, raising $3,200 in the process. However, she needs your help!
1.6 million Americans suffer from Crohn’s disease and/or ulcerative colitis. These conditions are painful and debilitating, and currently there is no cure for either. Those afflicted by these diseases must frequently undergo procedures that are costly and time-consuming.
Luckily, the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation is an accredited non-profit organization that strives to improve the quality of life for sufferers of these conditions. It was given an ‘A’ rating by the independent watchdog group Charity Watch. Much of the contributions made will be given right back to research facilities at UC San Diego.
As a donor to her campaign, Torrey Holistics is proud to support Shelby as she runs for research. However, your help is still needed – be the link to find a cure and make a donation today!
Peanut Butter Drive
For the month of November, 2017, Torrey Holistics teamed up with FEEDING KIDS FIRST to collect and donate jars of peanut butter and raise money for their “Got Your Back” program. Each jar of peanut butter donated helps feed a child for one weekend, and every $30 raised helps feed a child for four.
FEEDING KIDS FIRST is a nonprofit organization committed to “leveling the playing field of opportunity for children attending school in San Diego County by removing one of the biggest obstacles to their success… HUNGER.”
There are currently over 20,000 children attending San Diego County schools who have been identified as homeless and food insecure.
“Got Your Back San Diego (GYB) is a weekend food assistance program developed specifically for children who depend on school cafeteria food for their primary source of nutrition Monday through Friday and are often forced to skip meals on weekends due to limited resources, the project began in 2010 with 22 children at Olive Elementary in Vista, Ca and now provides 275 children with 6 meals every weekend throughout each school year.”
Torrey Holistics is proud to fight food insecurity among children in San Diego!
Weed For Warriors
In the summer of 2017, Torrey Holistics raised over $40,000 for the Weed For Warriors Project, a nonprofit organization that advocates to the VA “on behalf of veterans in the United States seeking relief from cannabis.”
“Veterans are being prescribed harsh pharmaceutical drugs that are extremely addictive and have been linked to thousands of Veteran suicides.
Cannabis has been proven to help with PTSD, cancer, chronic pain, sleep disorders, crohn’s disease, migraines, addiction withdrawal and has statistically lowered the suicide rate in states where it is legal.”
“Weed For Warriors Project’s sole purpose is to advocate to the Veteran Affairs Administration on behalf of all Veterans. Founded in 2014, the WFW Project aims to allow Veterans the freedom to use medical marijuana as a recognized medical alternative to harmful psychiatric drugs without any discrimination or unjust actions against the individual.”
To the brave veterans who risked their lives serving our country – we salute you!
24th Annual Classy Golf Classic
On September 29, 2017, Torrey Holistics was proud to sponsor the 15th hole and golf towels for the 24th Annual Classy Golf Classic in Coronado.
The event benefited College for Cancer, which has handed out over 1,100 scholarships totaling more than $2.5 Million since 1993. We are proud to support cancer survivors realizing their dream of a college education.
