2019 Heroes in Action Honorees

On September 13th, 2018 a natural gas disaster brough chaos to the Merrimack Valley. Explosions, fires, and the loss of a young life led to mandatory evacuations and extended utitility outages.

The Essex County Community Foundation, under the dynamic leadership of Beth Francis and Carol Lavoie Schuster, galvanized community support to provide aid and comfort through its Greater Lawrence Disaster Relief Fund.

It is through their fearless and tireless leadership that so many organizations, volunteers, and the entire community came together to provide months of support and care of those impacted by the gas disaster.
