Our UHC volunteers at a special film screening in Hollywood!

Harmony Gold Theater
UnitedHealthcare is proud to be the founding sponsor of La Golda, the first bilingual, socially conscious animation for kids. Released in 2015 in partnership with actors Judy Reyes (“Claws”), Roselyn Sanchez (“Grand Hotel”) and Eric Winter (“The Rookie”), along with writer/director George Valencia, La Golda features a Latina orphan who flies around the world with her soccer team of international orphans shining a spotlight on social issues that affect kids. This fall, we partnered with La Golda to produce a feature film featuring Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) and Justina Machado (“One Day at a Time”). Entitled “Game Changer,” the film introduces the first ever openly gay animated character who is a kid. On Oct. 12, UnitedHealthcare volunteers gave their time at this special screening of the film at Harmony Gold Theater. Volunteers helped run this special event, which was attended by hundreds of celebrities, media outlets, bloggers, social media influencers and more.

Supporting Houston’s Backpack Buddy Program

Houston TX
UnitedHealthcare has provided a grant to provide fresh produce distributions to kids at eight schools in the Houston, TX. These initial distributions help fill the gap between the summer nutrition program and the school nutrition program. To accompany this grant, UnitedHealthcare volunteers will help distribute food to students at two of the schools in Houston on Sept. 11 and Oct. 9. One in four southeast Texas children are at-risk of hunger, which means they don’t have consistent access to enough nutritious food. Many of these children rely on school meals to provide breakfast and lunch during the school year. During breaks, such as weekends and holidays, many of these children go home to little or no meals. The Houston Food Bank’s Backpack Buddy program works to fill that gap by providing nutritious, child-friendly food for school children to take home over the weekend.  Through the Backpack Buddy program, the Houston Food Bank, works in partnership with participating schools, school district delivery sites, and other community partners, to ensure that the food sacks are distributed to children in need.
