Modelled after successful cross-sector collaborations in Salem and Lowell, the Lawrence Partnership hosted a launch party on November 21st. The 36 member board of directors, a diverse group Lawrence, MA residents, business owners, and other leaders, will work together to bring economic growth and development to the region. The Partnership's first initiative, announced at the launch, is the "Spend 10" campaign, which encourages those who live or work in Lawrence to spend $10 or more at a local business.
SCI has spent the past few months designing a web portal for the Lawrence Partnership, which was also launched on November 21st. SCI President David Crowley was in attendance at the party, as well as SCI AmeriCorps member and Lawrence native Sabrina Boggio of Groundwork Lawrence.
