Food Drive Helps
Because of the generosity of donors and employees, the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council, Inc. provided Thanksgiving dinner to dozens of its neediest clients. A food drive raised more than $3,600 in food and donations to provide a nutritious holiday meal to 72 families in need in Greater Lawrence.
“For many of these families, the donations meant they didn’t have to choose between paying a utility bill and purchasing food to eat on the holiday. With the help of generous donors, our agency’s neediest families shared in the celebration of Thanksgiving,” said Evelyn Friedman, Executive Director, of the GLCAC Inc.
Navigate Health Care
Ready to help residents find the right health insurance plan for themselves and their families, the Greater Lawrence Community Action Council Inc. is pleased to be in partnership with the Massachusetts Health Connector to provide information and assistance to Greater Lawrence-area residents seeking health insurance.
