Have you heard the news? 42 Degrees is now an official, year-round corporate sponsor of the Veteran Food pantry in Omaha! Since 42 Degrees opened our doors in Omaha, we have made it our mission to serve the community however we can. We’re excited about this new opportunity to serve, and we hope you come along for the journey!
But what does this all mean for both 42 Degrees and the Omaha Veterans Food Pantry? We’re here to give you a closer look at what this corporate sponsorship means for the community and why we’ve made this commitment. We’ll also share information on how you can get involved.
What is The Veterans Food Pantry?
Unfortunately, many American veterans are low-income or homeless. These honored veterans may not know where their next meal comes from despite their sacrifices for our nation. That’s why the Veterans Food Pantry in Nebraska provides food and other necessities to local veterans in need with help from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Veterans Food Pantry in Omaha gathers donations like non-perishables and hygiene products. This service plays a vital role in the lives of veterans in Nebraska. Their hard work and values inspired the 42 Degrees staff to get involved with veterans affairs in the local community.
Why 42 Degrees?
At 42 Degrees, we are committed to improving the lives of our customers, community, and even their pets! We specialize in selling products that can change someone’s life for the better. We are proud of the work we do, whether it’s providing products that:
- Help customers quit smoking
- Relieve chronic pain
- Ease anxiety
- Give a brighter outlook
But while we’ve proudly served quality service and products for years, there’s always more we can do to help those in need. This is why we reached out to the VA Food Pantry in Omaha to see how we could get involved.
How It All Began
For one week in November 2020, what we thought would be a temporary partnership began. 42 Degrees hosted the food drive, encouraging our clients to bring in donations for the pantry while our owner pledged to donate a portion of all the week’s proceeds to the pantry.
What resulted was incredible and a true testament to our clients’ open hearts and generosity. With $3,000 in food donated and $1,500 donated from the store, we saw what an impact our company could make. And we just didn’t want to stop there!
The 42 Degrees Sponsorship
To keep all this goodness going, 42 Degrees has committed a year-round sponsorship. Here’s what that will look like in practice:
– Taking donations at every 42 Degrees location all year
When you find yourself with some extra, non-perishable food on hand or want to make the most of your day, you can always bring donations to any of our locations.
– Special sales
Who doesn’t love a sale? Now throughout the year, enjoy special, limited-time sales. During the sale, a portion of all proceeds will be donated to the Omaha Veterans Food Pantry.
How to Help
Just as we’ve supported our clients through obstacles and trials, we know our clients want to support the Omaha community just as much. This is why we’re proud to make our donation boxes available to customers at all times.
So, you don’t need to wait around for a special drive to help your community. Any time you stop in, feel free to donate non-perishable food and other necessities. And know that your money is going towards an important cause during our special sales.
The 42 Degrees Community
You know love 42 Degrees for our extensive line of CBD, kratom, candles, incense, and vaping products. But we aren’t satisfied with just being a high-quality, one-stop shop for all your lifestyle needs. We are excited to work together with customers to make a positive difference in the lives of our local veterans.
Whether it’s your first time coming to 42 Degrees or you’re a regular customer, stop by to support this cause and help our local veterans!
