Dtox Juice has announced a GoFundMe campaign in which it will match every donation and double the quantity of juice distributed to frontline workers in metro Atlanta. Dtox will include donor’s names and an uplifting note on each case of juice delivered. The company seeks to raise $10,000 in donations, which will translate to more than $20,000 worth of juice distributed to local defenders.
Dtox Juice launched its “Dtox for Defenders” initiative on March 23 and has been delivering cold-pressed juice to workers in metro Atlanta. Company owners have personally delivered cases of nutritious juice to Grady Hospital, Northside Hospital, Emory University Hospital and Piedmont Hospital, fire stations, countless parking lot security attendants and grocery store workers.
Company owners have already delivered hundreds of juices and have self-funded this effort as a donation to Atlanta’s essential workers.
In learning from local hospitals that up to 1,500 staff members per hospital are employed daily on the COVID-19 floors, Dtox owners Karen Spencer and Jenny Forst recognized that it’s possible to reach thousands of people per day who can benefit from the program by inviting the community to participate in this goodwill via a GoFundMe campaign.
This will allow Dtox to continue the program and extend the reach to more front-line workers.
“Our nutrient-dense juices are made with fresh vegetables and fruit and that is a critical part of a healthy diet to keep an immune system strong. Juice is no doubt a better alternative to coffee from a vending machine,” said Karen Spencer, Co-Owner.
