Business Briefcase



As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Peabody Glen Health Care Center held its annual Chowder Fest, which raised more than $1,000 for Mass General/North Shore Cancer Center. Bertucci’s in Peabody co-sponsored the event and donated an unlimited supply of its signature pizza, and Peabody Glen’s entire staff donated homemade baked goods for a bake sale at the event. Peabody Glen’s director of nursing, Catherine Yarrow, also assembled grab-bags that included instruction cards for self-examinations to help people recognize early warning signs. In addition to the Chowder Fest, throughout October, Peabody Glen employees raised awareness and money for the Cancer Center by selling breast cancer awareness bracelets and edible treats at the front desk. Peabody Glen Health Care Center is a 150-bed rehabilitation and nursing facility in Peabody and offers short-term rehab and memory care.
