Last week, our CHPW executive leadership team volunteered their time at the @nwharvestteenboard Cherry Street facility. On their way to Northwest Harvest, they got stuck on an elevator for 45 minutes! They were able to help out at the food bank for about 3 hours, helping clients get food and the organizing the food for the next shift of volunteers. They really enjoyed the experience and were very impressed with the organization of the operation!
Our @communityhealthplanwashington Mission Committee is excited to announce that 314 food items & 64 pounds of rice were collected in our Fight Summer Hunger Food Drive benefitting Rainier Valley Food Bank!
As the only not-for-profit health plan founded by community health centers in Washington state, our @communityhealthplanwashington employees provide care to communities throughout the state. As a company, we believe in being socially responsible, which is why each year all employees are provided up to 40 hours of paid time to use for community service!
Last week our CHPW Finance team walked over to #YouthCare with lots of food and cooked a healthy lunch of spaghetti, corn, sausage and rolls for homeless youth. Want to help YouthCare get homeless teens off of the streets? The center is in need of supplies such as clothes, socks, and chapsticks! Donations can be made at: www.youthcare.org
The average cost of school supplies has risen to $120 for one child and that number is increasing every year! CHPW will be partnering again with Communities In Schools of Seattle this August to make sure that no child in Seattle lacks the school supplies that help them feel prepared for the new school year. 2015 marks the 10th year of #StufftheBusSeattle and the goal is to reach 10,000 kids. #TBT to our 2014 drive when our CEO came out to help the Stuff the Bus!
Last Friday the CHPW Enterprise Projects team volunteered at the ACRS Food Bank in the International District. It was a great team building experience and everyone at @communityhealthplanwashington loves helping out ACRS!
