Delota kicked off the partnership with PCFB for Canada Day (and to celebrate 180 Smoke's - the Company's flagship vape brand - 10th anniversary), with a donation campaign that ran from June 30, 2023 to July 2, 2023 whereby 180 Smoke contributed $1 per transaction, ultimately donating $5,000 to PCFB during the three-day period.
The Company would like to thank 180 Smoke's customers who made this first initiative such a success and is excited to announce an expanded collaboration with PCFB. Starting July 14, 2023, 180 Smoke customers can participate in a food donation drive at the following store locations:
- 171 East Liberty Street, Unit 118;
- 886 Bloor Street West;
- 657 Yonge Street;
- 429 Spadina Avenue, 2nd Floor;
- 393 Queen Street West; and
- 228 Queens Quay West, Unit 9.
"We would like to extend a warm invitation to all of our 180 Smoke customers to contribute to our ongoing efforts to combat hunger with PCFB by donating essential and non-perishable items at any of the participating stores," said Christina Pan, COO of Delota. "Your generosity can make a significant difference in the lives of those in need."
To ensure that donations are effective and beneficial, Delota asks that contributors limit donations to non-perishable food items, hygiene, baby, and pet products.
"As a proud Toronto-grown organization, we have a deep-rooted commitment to giving back to our vibrant city. We believe access to healthy food is a human right and we want to do our part to make sure the most vulnerable are being helped," said Pan. "By forging a partnership with the Parkdale Community Food Bank, we aim to harness the collective power of our stores, employees, networks, and customers to make meaningful differences. Together, we can build a brighter future for all."
