Molina Responds to Community Need Following Violent Tornadoes in Michigan

PORTAGE, Mich. – Employees of Molina Healthcare of Michigan (“Molina”) rushed to the aid of residents impacted by the May 7 tornadoes that destroyed numerous homes in southwest Michigan. 

Molina volunteers were on-site providing donations to one of the hardest hit areas in Portage, the Pavilion Estates Mobile Home Park, where over 100 people lost their homes due to the storm. 

Molina partnered with the Salvation Army at the mobile home park distributing the most requested items including toilet paper, work gloves and hand sanitizer. Molina also donated personal care items to Twelve Basket’s Free Store, which opened their doors Thursday specifically to those affected by the tornado. 

“Those impacted by the severe weather are our fellow Michiganders and we are committed to helping those in our communities when they need us most,” said Terrisca Des Jardins, plan president for Molina Healthcare of Michigan.
