Your passion for the mission is what keeps us pushing ahead. Thank you for all you do and please stay safe.
COVID-19 has left one million Massachusetts residents unemployed, and SNAP applications have increased by 360%. Lawrence has been hit hard - with 1 in 4 residents reporting as positive.
As we head into summer, Covid-19 continues to devastate the most vulnerable members of our community. Food insecurity looms large for our homeless, immigrants and seniors as they face even greater economic hardship, isolation and fewer places to turn to for help.
Since the pandemic began, together we've delivered over 100,000 pounds of food to local agencies, churches and the homeless of Lawrence.
Uncertainty is the word of the day. We're unsure of what tomorrow will bring, but our resolve to continue our response to this staggering reality on the ground in Lawrence and surrounding communities is unwavering. Even if it gets worse before it gets better, we'll be keeping our outreach efforts going to help as many people as possible.
