Ultra Health to Host Sock Drive

Ultra Health, the state’s leading medical cannabis provider, will host a sock drive at all it’s dispensaries during the first week of November through December 20. As part of Ultra Health’s corporate giving program, it is committed to giving back to the communities it serves, and will match each pair of socks donated.

The number one needed clothing item for the homeless is socks, as people very rarely donate them. Socks can make a world of difference for someone in need. New socks reduce the risk of skin infections, prevent frostbite and foster good hygiene.

"Success for an organization should not be defined by what we get, but by what we give," said Duke Rodriguez, CEO and President of Ultra Health®. "The Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act was created to provide compassion and relief to those in need. We would like to extend this commitment by helping the charities serving less fortunate New Mexicans.” Continue reading "Ultra Health to Host Sock Drive"
