Tewksbury, MA – Lowell Five Bank and Lowell General Hospital are community partners with a long history of cooperation and mutual support. Lowell Five is one of the Hospital’s largest corporate sponsors. This year, as in 2020, Lowell General was forced to cancel many of its most successful fundraising events due to COVID-19 concerns. To help alleviate some of the financial strain COVID-19 has placed on many of the Bank’s community partners, Lowell Five Bank has reached out to organizations like Lowell General, looking for meaningful ways that they can provide assistance.
Lowell Five Bank was able to step in and support the Hospital’s COVID-19 vaccination efforts at the recently opened mass vaccination site at Lowell’s Cross River Center. Lowell Five Bank assumed the cost to uniform the staff and volunteers working for the Mass Vaccine Program (MVP). Printed with MVP on the chest and Lowell Five logo on the right arm, the casual, quarter-zip uniform shirts are colored-coded to provide patients with a friendly user experience. Blue and gray shirts identify vaccinators and registration support staff. Red shirts are worn by patient ushers.
“We identified an important need for our vaccine rollout and Lowell Five immediately stepped in to help,” comments Jennifer Hanson, Director of Philanthropy at Lowell General Hospital. “We thank the Lowell Five Team for their generosity, on-going support, and partnership.”
“The staff at Lowell General are the brave front-line people keeping our community safe. We were happy to participate when they needed assistance to carry out the work that they do.” David E. Wallace, President, and CEO, Lowell Five Bank.
