Team8 Tour – Denver

Northfield High School - Paul Sandoval Campus
UnitedHealthcare’s "Do Good. Live Well." employee volunteer initiative has teamed up with CBS EcoMedia and The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation for the "Team8 Tour," a series of volunteer projects and youth programs designed to help build character, teach critical life lessons and encourage healthy choices that will impact thousands of young people across the country. The newest high school in Denver, Northfield has a vision of creating an inclusive and tough academic program, designed to erase academic divides by offering the rigorous International Baccalaureate program to all kids. More than 60 percent of students are eligible for free and reduced lunch, and the need for healthy food options and physical activity is high. In partnership with Northfield High School and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver, volunteers spent the day building a new food pantry for kids who may need food at home, packing healthy take-home meals, outfitting a home economics classroom, and leading fitness activities for local students. The day ended with volunteers preparing a community dinner for all event participants, including volunteers, students, Boys & Girls Club kids, parents, teachers and neighbors.

Playground Build with the Patriots

Providence, R.I.
We are all aware that America’s kids are playing less than any previous generation. Declining recess, a lack of safe places to play, overly-structured schedules and too much screen time have replaced balanced and active play…and now we find that one in three kids is obese or overweight. For the seventh consecutive year, "Do Good. Live Well." partnered with the New England Patriots and KaBOOM! as part of our ongoing effort to build healthier communities and decrease the incidence of obesity. Kids and families in Providence, R.I. watched their neighborhood park transform into a playground that will help enhance their health, achievement levels and overall well-being.  More than 1,000 children and families will have an opportunity to use this new playground every year!

Hygiene Kit Packing at Vikings Training Camp – Mankato

Mankato
Many Minnesota families struggle not only to have enough nutritious food, but they also have difficulty affording personal hygiene and household products. Food shelves try to help with shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste and other items, but are sometimes unable to offer them due to cost. As part of our “Kick Senior Hunger” campaign in partnership with the Minnesota Vikings, UnitedHealthcare volunteers and kids from a local summer school program teamed up to pack 1,500 hygiene kits for our neighbors in need.  Second Harvest Heartland will coordinate distribution of the kits through the food bank’s network of agency partner programs.

Our 20th Playground Build

Dream Weavers of Georgia
Since 2010, UnitedHealthcare has built 19 playgrounds with the nonprofit KaBOOM! in communities across the country where we live and work. We’re excited to have built our 20th playground at DreamWeavers of Georgia in Alpharetta. DreamWeavers is dedicated to enriching the lives of foster children who are placed in the custody of the Georgia Department of Family and Children Services due to abuse and neglect. The new playground will serve as a “live lab” to teach parents how to parent their children and to assist in the reunification of families. It will also offer a safe, controlled space where treatment team members can observe the children in play in a natural environment.
