Fighting hunger in Charlotte!

Lawrence Orr Elementary School
Almost one in five children in North Carolina faces hunger on a regular basis. UnitedHealthcare’s “Do Good. Live Well.” volunteer initiative is proud to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina to provide the students at Lawrence Orr Elementary School in Charlotte, N.C. and their families access to fresh produce at a FREE pop-up market in their own backyard! Nearly 100 percent of the school’s 700 students receive free or reduced-price lunch, making this program especially important in providing the nutrition these kids need to learn and grow. On Oct. 29 from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., UnitedHealthcare volunteers will assist with set up and take down of the market, as well as helping families choose their produce and load their vehicles.

Fighting childhood obesity in West Virginia!

Mylan Park Elementary School - Morgantown, WV
More than one in three kids (nearly 36 percent) in West Virginia are overweight or obese. Contributing to the rise in the state’s obesity and diabetes rates is the fact that many schools have little to no budget for physical education. As part of our ongoing effort to Build Healthier Communities and decrease obesity, “Do Good. Live Well” provided a grant through Kids in the Game to Mylan Park Elementary School in Morgantown, WV to implement a program called “AMPED”, a before-school walking/running program to increase physical activity for the entire school through one program. On Tuesday, Sept. 25 from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m., volunteers from UnitedHealthcare and Mylan Park Elementary School staff came together to kick off this new fitness program with the students.
