SAN FRANCISCO — Good Vibrations, the legendary San Francisco-based retailer, has announced its partnership with Lyon-Martin, an iconic healthcare provider for the LGBT community.

Due to an economic crisis Lyon-Martin is at risk of shutting its doors. Good Vibrations said it hopes that donations will keep the doors open at this San Francisco institution that offers excellent health care to women and transgender people in a safe and compassionate environment with sensitivity to sexual and gender identity; services are provided regardless of ability to pay.

Lyon-Martin recently announced its intentions to close its doors due to financial crisis. A community forum, organized in response to the announcement, generated grassroots mobilization and fundraising aimed at keeping Lyon-Martin's services available to its nearly 2,500 patients.

"We're thrilled at the response we've gotten from key decision makers in San Francisco, and from the overwhelming community support pouring in," said Dawn Harbatkin, the clinic's Interim Executive Director. "The community's actions show how important Lyon-Martin's survival is to so many people."

The clinic’s immediate overall goal is $250,000.

Since Feb. 4, Good Vibes is accepting donations from customers of any of Good Vibes’ San Francisco locations.

"We're looking to community members to support us at this time," said Harbatkin. "Any money raised will be used to help reduce our debt in hopes of continuing patient care."

GiVe is Good Vibrations' extensive donation and sponsorship program. For more than 30 years Good Vibrations has partnered with hundreds of local and national non-profit organizations donating products, advertising and sponsorship for fundraisers and has provided much needed support for women’s shelters, HIV/AIDS research, art programs, LGBT benefits, breast cancer awareness and much more.

Additionally, every several months Good Vibrations partners with a different nonprofit organization and encourages their customers to contribute directly to them at checkout, online and in the stores. One hundred percent of the money raised from donations goes to the recipient organization.
