The Lawrence Guy Family Foundation is a 501c(3) organization that provides resources and opportunities for financially disadvantaged families. Lawrence and his wife Andrea Guy established the foundation in 2019 with the goal to inspire and help disadvantaged families to achieve their full potential.
Lawrence grew up in Las Vegas, NV and overcame a lot of personal challenges and obstacles to become an All-Decade Defensive Tackle for the New England Patriots. He knows that he would not be the man he is today without the people who provided guidance over the years and instilled the positive values and characteristics in his life, which is why he and his wife are so passionate about giving back to the communities they call home.
