Greater Lawrence Family Health Center Receives $25K Yawkey Grant for COVID-19 Equipment

NEC member The Greater Lawrence Family Health Center (GLFH) has received a $25,000 grant from the Yawkey Foundation to help meet the needs of patients. The funding will go towards critical equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The GLFH is approaching its 40th year of operation, and serves over 62,000 patients annually in Lawrence and Methuen, Massachusetts. The organization also has locations in Haverhill, as well as in Lawrence High and Greater Lawrence Technical School. All five locations are currently open and serving patients. The Yawkey Foundation was founded almost eighty years ago by Tom and Jean Yawkey, and operates with the mission of aiding underserved communities.

“We are very grateful to the Yawkey Foundations for their support,” said GLFHC President and CEO John M. Silva, adding, “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.”
