Healthy Lakewood Foundation To Host Virtual Community Meeting On September 16th

The Healthy Lakewood Foundation (HLF) is pleased to invite the community to a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 at 7 p.m. to learn about the foundation’s progress over the past 12 months and engage in conversation that will inform the foundation’s grantmaking in the coming year.

The meeting format will include reports from HLF’s officers on activities of the foundation over the past year, followed by breakout sessions in which all meeting participants will have the opportunity to engage with board members and with each other to share their perspectives on the health of the Lakewood community and future priorities.

“To say the last 12 months have been eventful would be an understatement,” says Board President Jeanine Gergel. “We are eager to share how we have responded to the needs of the community during these turbulent times. Even more important will be the chance to hear from our neighbors about how they are faring and what needs the community faces going forward.”

The meeting will be held via Zoom. A brief orientation and Zoom training session will be held at 6:45 p.m. for anyone that may need assistance using the virtual platform. Community members may also participate by phone. For security, all attendees must register in advance at:

Following registration, a meeting confirmation will be sent via email that contains instructions to log in to the Zoom meeting or dial in telephonically.
