NORML of Waco has helped raise over $5,000 for a local cancer patient.
The non-profit chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws scheduled their 6th Annual Birthday Bash to coincide with a fundraiser being held at The Shade Tree in Hewitt, TX to help raise funds for medical expenses. The group donated raffle items and helped bring out a crowd on Saturday, July 25.
Glenn Bledsoe lost his home, job, all of his belongings, and insurance due to back and neck surgery. He has been diagnosed with Melanoma as well.
“Helping benefit others and raising awareness about the need for involvement within our community is part of the NORML of Waco mission,” stated Clif Deuvall, who is the executive director of the non-profit organization.
Volunteers tabled the event, handing out information about reforming marijuana laws, and promoting upcoming events, including a major meeting in August, as well as a local protest.
NORML of Waco Inc. was founded in July of 2009 and helps to raise awareness in central Texas about the need to reform marijuana laws.
