Molina Healthcare of Texas (“Molina”) partnered with local community business organizations to distribute holiday meals and toys and host holiday celebrations for underserved populations across Texas. The holidays can be a particularly stressful time for families with limited resources. 

Molina, together with Mesquite ISD, hosted a “Winter Wonderland” event for moms featuring snacks, holiday giveaways and more. Attendees had the opportunity to make bracelets while connecting with other moms.

“At Molina, we are committed to meeting the needs of individuals and families, not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year,” said Chris Coffey, plan president of Molina Healthcare of Texas. “We are proud to partner with community organizations that share our dedication to improving the health and well-being of Texans across the state.”

Molina partnered with Uplift Community’s Grandparents-Kinship Support Group in Fort Worth to host a holiday event featuring music, door prizes, snacks, games, crafts and bingo.  Health education information was also shared with attendees.

Together with Catholic Charities, Molina hosted a family holiday event in Dallas, where 150 gift packs were distributed. Each pack included games, hot chocolate, marshmallows, a baby toy and toothbrushes. Pajamas, diapers and wipes were also available.

In Laredo, Molina hosted a holiday dance celebration for participants of an adult day care and senior center.  Attendees enjoyed entertainment, refreshments and snacks while celebrating a host of cultural traditions.

Other holiday events included a holiday health and relaxation event for seniors in Texarkana, a “Treats with the Grinch” community event in Laredo, a hot cocoa holiday event at the Boys and Girls Club of El Paso, a holiday cooking event for families in El Paso, a Christmas luncheon for grandparents raising grandchildren in San Antonio, an ugly sweater fashion show for seniors in Houston, a holiday party for students in Beaumont, a winter wonderland social for new moms in Houston and a cookie decorating event for moms in El Paso.

Molina continues to seek creative ways to engage with communities across Texas and looks forward to many more years of holiday giveaways to come.
