We are ecstatic to announce we received a Cultural Sector Recovery Grant for $46,010 from the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency. We are beyond grateful for their support!
We are also happy to announce that we will be receiving the Essex Heritage Partnership Grant for upcoming preservation work on the Osborn-Salata House. This grant given by Essex Heritage fosters and supports the stewardship activities of organizations that share their mission to preserve and enhance the historic, cultural and natural resources of the Essex National Heritage Area (Essex County, Massachusetts).
Last, but not least – The J.B. Thomas Lahey Foundation funds programs that support the health care needs of residents of Peabody, Massachusetts, and surrounding communities. The Peabody Historical Society and Museum recently received funding from the J.B. Thomas Lahey Foundation to purchase 2 Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). We welcome thousands of local people through our doors each year between our wedding rentals and our public programs. AEDs are essential to bridge the gap between cardiac arrest and the arrival of paramedics. Its use increases a person’s survival by 90% if administered in the first minute. The J.B Thomas-Lahey Foundation is at the forefront of local health initiatives, helping Peabody and the surrounding areas. We are honored to be a small part of their work.
