To mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Zen Leaf Dispensary locations across New Jersey are hosting a fundraiser to benefit one of the nation’s leading breast cancer research and education charities.
Starting Oct. 1, Zen Leaf’s three storefronts in Elizabeth, Neptune and Lawrence will make a donation to the Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation every time a customer receives a stamp for a purchase on their special punch card. Shoppers will also earn exclusive rewards, the company said.
The monthlong effort is part of parent company Verano Holdings‘ larger multistate initiative in support of the Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Foundation.
