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.

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!

Wednesday & Thursday, Aug. 28 & 29, 2019

Food as Medicine in Chicago

Chicago Regional Food Depository
UnitedHealthcare’s “Do Good. Live Well.” volunteer initiative has partnered with the Greater Chicago Food Depository to fight hunger throughout Chicago and Cook County. We’re supporting the Food Depository’s Fresh Truck program with a $50,000 grant. Through a partnership with ACCESS Community Health Network and the Cook County Health and Hospitals System, Fresh Trucks provide fresh produce to patients who indicate a high risk of hunger during an intake screening process. Our support will fund two monthly Fresh Truck mobile farmer’s market produce distributions for a year. We have two volunteer opportunities with the Greater Chicago Food Depository: Volunteers will assist with a Fresh Truck farmers market mobile produce distribution at ACCESS Westside and volunteers will also help sort and repack food for those in need at the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s warehouse.
