In 2009, philanthropists in Lawrence established the Lawrence Emergency Fund at Essex County Community Foundation to respond to tragedies caused by emergency events. Donations to this fund will assist affected families.
The Lawrence Emergency Fund supports emergency needs of individuals and families residing in the City of Lawrence who have been harmed by an emergency event, through fund distribution to appropriate nonprofit agencies or churches. Emergency events may include natural disasters such as a flood or storm, hazardous situations such as toxic events or civil disturbance, economic catastrophes such as a housing or business fire, or other events as determined by (designated) civic leaders.
If you would prefer to donate by mail, please make check payable to the Lawrence Emergency Fund/ECCF and mail to:
