A new nonprofit organization made up of Boston-area life science companies is donating more than $300,000 to 19 anti-poverty groups.
Life Science Cares, which was formally established this year, is providing grants to organizations that include Food for Free, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Massachusetts Bay, and The Possible Project.
“We in Boston’s life science community have long tackled the most difficult and complex scientific challenges in order to serve patients in need,” said Robert J. Perez, former chief executive of Cubist Pharmaceuticals and founder and chairman of Life Science Cares. “We now commit our time, talent and resources to tackle one of the most intractable issues facing our community: poverty.”
The organization had already contributed $85,000 to anti-poverty groups, but this round of contributions is considerably larger.
