How this Las Vegas Cannabis company gives back to the community

Giving back to the community is a priority for many all year long, but during the holidays, contributing receives extra focus.

 “We know many of our neighbors are facing tough times,” said Jon Marshall, chief operating officer of Deep Roots Harvest. “We must come together to provide assistance to our most vulnerable populations. We know it makes a world of difference.”

How Deep Roots Harvest approaches giving

Nevada is full of incredible organizations and corporate giving initiatives that help support local causes. As a Nevada-based company, Deep Roots Harvest prioritizes giving across the communities it serves, including Clark County, Reno, Mesquite and West Wendover.

“We’re Nevada-proud and we’re committed to supporting organizations in each community we operate in,” Marshall said. “It’s our duty as members of Las Vegas’ business network to make a difference.”

Deep Roots Harvest takes a multilayered approach, harnessing “time, talents and treasures,” Marshall said. “We’ve hosted several community cleanup initiatives, the most recent being in partnership with Keep Las Vegas Beautiful. We also make monetary donations, participate on local boards, and encourage volunteerism among our staff.”

Charitable partners

“While we support many nonprofit and initiative-based groups, including Three Square, American Civil Liberties Union and the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, we prioritize our statewide focus on smaller charities that are often overlooked, such as Beehive Housing of Mesquite, SafeNest, Historic Wendover Airfield, and the Urban Chamber of Commerce,” Marshall said. Other partners include:

• African Chamber of Commerce

• National Association for the Advancement of Colored People Las Vegas

• Southern Nevada Veterans Chamber of Commerce

• The Nevada Department of Veterans Services

• Adopt a Vet Dental Program

• Flags Over Mesquite

•Mesquite Chamber of Commerce

• Mesquite Police First Responders

• Mesquite Rotary Foundation

• Northern Nevada State Veterans Home

• R.A.I.S.E. Mesquite

• Star Spangled Shamblemania

• Wendover Parks & Recreation

Tips for personal giving

If you want to get involved in the community but aren’t sure where to start, look to others for inspiration. “Every bit helps,” Marshall said. “Whether it’s volunteering for a few hours, donating unused food and supplies to a local nonprofit, contributing financially, or taking on a bigger role, if there is a pillar of service that an individual or company is passionate about, reach out to organizations serving that demographic and ask what they need.”

It’s important to consider not only what you can do, but how to optimize your philanthropy based on your talents and interests. If you’re passionate about animals, fostering dogs and cats can be a great way of helping animal rescues. If you have experience in education, look for organizations that need tutoring services. Use your unique perspective and skill set, and find groups that would benefit. Start with something that works best for your situation and schedule. Making it manageable is key. Some organizations may even offer opportunities to volunteer virtually, allowing you to give back from the comfort of your home.
