This weekend we were able to deliver 40 wrapped presents to members of the Boys and Girls Club of Easton thanks to the generosity of the Health Partners Foundation. Members of Athletes C.A.R.E. delivered the presents that were kindly donated through the foundation to the excited children of Easton. Athletes C.A.R.E. has enjoyed a strong relationship with the B&GCE, through our P.A.W.S. (Pairing Athletes with Students) program where we connect members of the club to members of Athletes C.A.R.E. as pen pals and our Easter Egg Hunt we are thrilled to be able to provide these presents and instill the holiday giving spirit in the members of the club.
The Health Partners Foundation is part of Health Partners Plans, who offers comprehensive health care through groundbreaking medical plans. The Foundation strives to serve the communities they sponsor by supporting local organizations like Athletes C.A.R.E. and the Boys and Girls Club of Easton. In October, Athletes C.A.R.E. was honored to accept The 2016 Health Partners Foundation Community Transformation Award. Every year this award is presented to a local organization working to make a difference in their communities. It was a fantastic event for us to be able to participate in and we are looking forward to .continuing to work with Health Partners Plans in the future to better our communities.
