Girls Inc. of Lynn was recently one of 15 Boston-area nonprofit organizations awarded grants by Vermont-based Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. The parent company of Keurig, the Burlington-based coffee-machine maker, Green Mountain committed about $290,000 to support the work of local nonprofits. Green Mountain “is proud to support nonprofits that are making a real difference in our local communities,” Sandy Yusen, the company’s director of community relations, said in a statement. She said that in addition to grants, Green Mountain supports local nonprofits through volunteerism and product donations.
