Providing Fresh Produce in Syracuse!

Syracuse, NY
UnitedHealthcare's "Do Good. Live Well." employee volunteer initiative is proud to partner with the Food Bank of Central New York - Syracuse's food bank that provides more than 12 million meals to hungry families, children, and elderly every year. Through a $15,000 donation from UnitedHealthcare, the Food Bank of Central New York will provide access to fresh produce at two FREE pop-up markets in areas of need in Syracuse. In Central New York, one in eight individuals is food insecure, making this program especially important in providing the nutrition our hungry neighbors need to live healthy lives. Thirty UnitedHealthcare employee volunteers will lend a hand at these two fresh produce pop-up markets by assisting with set up and take down, as well as helping families shop for their produce and load their vehicles.

Playground Build in Ferguson. Mo.

Emerson Family YMCA
As part of our ongoing effort to Build Healthier Communities by decreasing hunger and obesity and increasing physical activity, UnitedHealthcare is teaming up with KaBOOM! to build our 30th playground together. This build will take place at the Emerson Family YMCA in Ferguson, Mo. Although the YMCA prioritizes health and wellness through physical activity, the campus doesn't have a playground. Because the Y is putting so many of its resources into meeting their immediate needs, this hasn't been a priority. More than 200 volunteers from UnitedHealthcare and the community will build an engaging and safe play space that will help enhance the Y's youngest members' health and well-being. Approximately 2,200 children will have the opportunity to use this new playground annually!

Our First Multi-Sport Court with KaBOOM!

Indianapolis
As part of our ongoing effort to Build Healthier Communities and decrease obesity, UnitedHealthcare’s "Do Good. Live Well." employee volunteer initiative is teaming up with KaBOOM! to build our 1st multi-sport court. While there are some play opportunities for younger kids at the neighboring elementary school, teens and adults lack an open play space in the community surrounding the church. With numerous after-school and summer programs geared towards teens and an active and engaged senior population that is heavily involved with programming, a multi-sport court will bring together all ages of church and community members alike.
