Under the leadership of Executive Director Jay Linnehan, the GLCF has made a strong commitment to fight the opioid epidemic in the community. To that end, they have once again awarded Megan’s House a grant as part of a larger, overall effort to support opioid abuse prevention and treatment, clean water initiatives, elder services and children’s services.
In all, 17-nonprofits in Greater Lowell and the Merrimack Valley received a combined $131,500 in discretionary funding, with Megan’s House receiving a generous award of $15,000.
Linnehan, who has visited the residential treatment program in the past and engaged the residents in conversation, presented the check during a visit this week to Megan’s House.
The Megan’s House Foundation would once again like to thank the Greater Lowell Community Foundation for their support and for being a dedicated partner in the fight against addiction.
