FWY was represented today at an informational luncheon which introduced the Shaw Fund for Mariners’ Children to area medical providers and social outreach groups in the New Bedford Community. The Shaw Fund is an important resource for fishermen and their dependents. FWY Client Coordinator Jim Comfort has been able to access the foundation’s resources for a number of our clients in the fishing industry for invaluable assistance.
