Greater Lawrence Family Health Center has received a $25,000 grant from the Yawkey Foundations to help meet the critical needs of patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.

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. All five GLFHC locations are currently open and serving patients, and also accepting new patients.

“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.”

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, the Yawkeys took careful steps to ensure that their legacy would live on through the work of the Yawkey Foundations.
