This week some @communityhealthplanwashington HR & Facilities team members volunteered time at the Seattle PlayGarden! The PlayGarden provides a safe place for children with special needs to play.
Last week some CHPW employees helped out at OPERATION: Sack Lunch by preparing and serving a nutritious and organic meal for some of Seattle's food insecure population! They had a great time and found the work to be very fulfilling!
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!
In 2016, CHPW employees more than doubled our goal and donated 544 books to the Valley View Health Center’s Literacy Corner! Because of their generosity, more than 500 children will take home a new book after their doctor appointment. We are always blown away by the generosity of our employees and Valley View greatly appreciated the donations!
Last week some CHPW employees attended the Center for Children and Youth Justice Advocate for their Youth Award Breakfast. The Center works hard to make life better for kids in Washington’s foster care and juvenile justice systems. Dr. Ben Danielson, Medical Director of @seattlechildrens Odessa Brown Medical Clinic, gave a moving speech about giving children access to quality care and generous supporters helped raise $381,000!
Did you know that Washington state is the 22nd hungriest state in the nation? 1 in 6 people relies on SNAP (food stamps) and half of all people on SNAP are kids. #NorthwestHarvest is the only nonprofit food bank distributor operating statewide in Washington, and the work they do is incredibly important. Last week, the @communityhealthplanwashington Human Resources team volunteered their time at the Cherry Street Food Bank and had a great time serving others!
Last week, a few of our Community Health Plan of Washington HR employees used their community volunteer hours to work at Northwest Harvest. Northwest Harvest can feed a family of three a nutritious meal for just 67 cents and more than 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly toward food distribution! Want to do some good this holiday season but don't know where to start? You can donate your time or money to Northwest Harvest! http://www.northwestharvest.org/donate #give #thanksgiving…
Our @communityhealthplanwashington Medical Management team volunteered at YouthCare today! They helped prepare a balanced lunch to feed a couple dozen homeless or at risk youth that came through the Orion center. Thank you to those who volunteered and for helping live the CHPW mission!
The @communityhealthplanwashington Claims Support team volunteered their time at OPERATION: Sack Lunch on Monday. They used their volunteer hours to prepare and serve food for the homeless in downtown Seattle. Homelessness has been declared an emergency siuation in the city of Seattle and CHPW wants to do our part to help! #operationsacklunch #homeless #seattle
Last week, our CHPW Care Improvement Team volunteered at the @wellspringfs Toy Shop for the 3rd year in a row! Each November and December, hundreds of people donate new toys, books, clothes, gift cards or money to help stock the Holiday Toy Room. Hundreds of families are then invited to select gift toys and games for their children! Wellspring expects about 1,000 children and families to benefit from these services throughout the holiday season. #GivingTogether #SpreadJoy
