COMMUNITY SUPPORT + GIVING BACK
Here at Maine Hempworks we believe in giving back to the community. With the purchase of this charity package we’ll donate 100% of the profit to the groups which the product is made for. Our first charity product, Believe, was created in 2016, for Caryn Pillsbury, who survived a stroke at the age of 29. The charity of her choice was the American Stroke Association. Caryn is the sister of Maine Hempworks co owner Keith. In 2018 we decided to take on two more charities for people who we know that have either been helped by their charity or been involved with their charity. Those two charities were, Autism Society of Maine, who’s help Brian Thompson really appreciated in getting his son, who has autism, the help he needed, and MitoAction, who Sheridan Johnston has been active with and was diagnosed with mitochondrial disease in 2008. Please read their stories on why these charities mean so much to them by scrolling down! We also make a yearly donation of products to Preble Street, who’s mission is to provide accessible barrier-free services to empower people experiencing problems with homelessness, housing, hunger, and poverty, and to advocate for solutions to these problems. These are certainly problems we believe need to be addressed and support Preble Street with soaps and balms.
