Glaxo Smith Kline
The Philadelphia-based Food Trust heads the new initiative, called “Get Hype Philly.”
Glaxo Smith Kline gave nine $40,000 “Impact Award” grants to nonprofit groups that work to create healthier communities through education, food resources, shared spaces, and more.
Thousands of economically disadvantaged Philadelphia students will be able to explore and develop an appreciation for art at the Barnes Foundation, thanks to an endowment gift from the global pharmacuetical giant.
Each group received a $40,000 GSK “Impact” award from Glaxo Smith Kline, the pharmaceutical firm whose US headquarters is in Philadelphia.
The Philadelphia Navy Yard has gone from hard times to boom times and there’s more to come.
Glaxo’s 1,300 workers in center city, currently based in two Franklin Plaza buildings near 16th and Vine, will move to the Navy Yard Corporate Center by the end of 2012.
