515 Broadway Dispensary is partnering with Front Street Animal Shelter to provide day fostering and pet field trips for abandoned animals in need of forever families. Employees will offer love and support during the day with 515 Broadway Staff providing walks to the park and affection, giving the pets a break from the stressful shelter environment. The Dispensary is also sponsoring adoptions at their annual 420 party, in an effort to promote adoption for families looking for pets. Prospective pet owners will undergo the normal screening and interview process to ensure a safe and happy fit for pets and families.
515 Broadway and Volunteers hosted a free Thank You Breakfast for Veterans and First Responders. As a gesture of our appreciation for their service and sacrifice, they were granted exclusive access an hour early, given free product, and served free hot breakfast. Proud and appreciative Veterans sported hats and attire from their respective military branch. They enjoyed breakfast in beautiful weather sitting at tables under the United States Flag with Honor.
Purchasing school supplies can be challenging for some families. In an effort to show our love and support for kids, education and community, 515 Broadway donated over a hundred backpacks and $1000 to fill them with supplies to help support underprivileged children returning to school.
The Valley Fire was a wildfire during the 2015 California wildfire season that started on September 12 in Lake County, California. The fire started shortly after 1:00 pm near Cobb and by 6:30 PM had burned more than 10,000 acres (40 km2). By Sunday, the fire had reached 50,000 acres (202 km2) and had destroyed much of Cobb, Middletown, Whispering Pines, and parts in the south end of Hidden Valley Lake. The fire ultimately spread to 76,067 acres (308 km2), killed four people and destroyed nearly 2,000 buildings. At the time, the fire was the third-worst fire in California history, based on the total structures burned.
515 Broadway donated many supplies including hundreds of socks, supplies, and food items for families, firefighters and animals.
