Fuel the Fight - The Andovers, Inc.
Our local restaurants need business and Lawrence General Hospital employees working on the front line of the Covid pandemic need food because
their cafeteria is closed, and more importantly ... the outpouring of public support in sending meals to the hospitals has been a "tremendous" emotional boost to the healthcare workers while they face dealing with Covid-19 day-in and day-out. Through generous donations, we have been able to send meals to Holy Family Hospital Methuen and Lahey Clinic Burlington!
Fuel the Fight campaigns began and grew organically among people eager to help both frontline essential workers and the struggling food service industry. As a result, they seek to reach as many health care workers in their community as possible. To serve these needs, "Fuel the Fight - The
Andovers, Inc." was established by four Andover business women to gather donations that are 100% utilized via this "Go Fund Me" to pay
participating local restaurants for meals they deliver to the hospital.
"Our mission is to help the local restaurants struggling to stay in business during this crisis while supporting the health care workers at Lawrence General Hospital." - Kristen Guthrie
