Our mission is to uplift our patients and customers with high-quality, sustainably produced medicine. While we pursue this mission, we are constantly guided by our values – they are the internal compass that remains at the core of everything we do at Firelands Scientific. Our vision is to harness cannabis and sustainable business practices as a force for good in the world. Ultimately, we don’t just want to be the best cannabis company in Ohio, we want to be the best cannabis company for Ohio.
Who is the Sunshine Committee?
Firelands Scientific, a recently Certified B Corporation, believes in using business as a force for good. Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability. Firelands Scientific’s philanthropic work is an integral component of the company’s impact-driven business model.
Firelands Scientific’s Sunshine Committee is composed of 19 staff members who meet bi-weekly to organize events that help uplift others with the purpose of creating a positive impact in the communities. This year, the Sunshine Committee demonstrated Firelands Scientific’s social and environmental impact by giving back to their community in 32 different ways, all during a global pandemic. The Sunshine Committee consistently commits to uplifting others and seeks out innovative approaches to elevate the passions of each team member.
The Sunshine Committee members all have specific jobs within the company, and this is something they take on in addition to their daily duties. Not only do the Sunshine Committee staff members meet bi-weekly to organize events, but each month Firelands Scientific provides their entire staff the opportunity to participate in “Give-Back Days™“ in which they’re provided with one company-sponsored day each month to devote to community service.
“I’m incredibly impressed by how far we have come and with all that we have accomplished as a committee in 2020. The support we are shown daily through our employees generosity is absolutely overwhelming – especially given how many hardships we know everyone has faced this year,” Lacey Crews, Office Administrator and Sunshine Committee Chairwoman said. “I suppose that’s exactly what makes us all want to do our best to help provide that support to others.”
Firelands Scientific distributed hand sanitizer to first responders and caregivers throughout Erie County, including: Firefighters, Police Officers and Nursing Homes. 100 gallons filled and distributed to combat COVID-19.
