Providing a free meal to children in Ohio

The Chiller - Columbus, OH
On average, only one in ten of the low-income children in Ohio who participate in the National School Lunch Program participates in a summer nutrition program. Summer nutrition programs, like the ones organized by Children's Hunger Alliance, serve as a bridge to fill the summer meal gap that so many children face each year. As part of our ongoing effort to decrease hunger, UnitedHealthcare's "Do Good. Live Well." volunteer initiative teamed up with Children's Hunger Alliance to provide children in central Ohio access to a nutritious meal during those difficult summer months. On Thursday, July 26 at the "Children's Hunger Alliance Summer Skate" in Columbus, Ohio, 50 UnitedHealthcare volunteers had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the underserved children in their community. The over 200 children at this event received a free meal, engaged in some physical and mental activity, and got a bag of goodies to take home with them.

Bringing Play to Tucson

Udall Park
The City of Tucson is facing a budget deficit. There is no money in the Parks & Recreation Department's budget to replace playgrounds that are old and in disrepair, like the one in Udall Park, which was 25+ years old, had started to rust and was missing pieces. As part of our ongoing effort to build healthier communities and decrease the incidence of obesity, "Do Good. Live Well." teamed up with KaBOOM! and the City of Tucson to build a new playground at Udall Park. On Wednesday, May 23 more than 200 volunteers from the community built an engaging and safe play space in six hours. We provided a safe and fun place for nearly 1,200 children to play annually!
