GLFHC Receives $25,000 Yawkey Foundations Grant
Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFHC) is pleased to announce it has received a $25,000 grant from the Yawkey Foundations.
Now in its 40th year, GLFHC provides health care to more than 62,000 patients annually, and has locations and pharmacies in Lawrence and Methuen. A Haverhill location and pharmacy are scheduled to open this fall. The health center also has two school-based locations, in Lawrence High and Greater Lawrence Technical School.
The grant will assist the health center in meeting the critical needs of its patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. All five GLFHC locations are currently open and serving patients, and also accepting new patients. For a full list of locations, hours and pharmacy information, go to https://glfhc.org.
“We are very grateful to the Yawkey Foundations for their support,” said John M. Silva, President & CEO of GLFHC. “This grant helps us continue providing health care to the community, as well as purchase and install the protective equipment needed to keep our patients and staff safe.”
The Yawkey Foundations trace its origins back over eight decades to the philanthropic commitments of Tom and Jean Yawkey. With great concern for the forgotten and underserved, Tom and Jean Yawkey took careful steps to ensure that their legacy would live on through the work of the Yawkey Foundations.
