NEW BEDFORD – On Tuesday, December 6, Senior Whole Health by Molina Healthcare held its Trunksgiving event at Tripp Towers where close to 100 residents stopped by to pick up an array of donated items, grab a healthy snack and check their blood pressure.
The health plan provided over 500 hygiene products, paper goods and food items. Nurse care managers were on site to provide blood pressure screenings to visitors who were interested. Senior Whole Health employees hand-delivered bags full of donated goods to members who couldn’t make it.
In March, Senior Whole Health donated $10,000 to Coastline Elderly Services, a local aging services organization that supplies healthy breakfast meals to Tripp Towers residents three days a week. The meals consist of fruits, whole grains and healthy proteins to give seniors the best possible start to their day. Senior Whole Health is proud to partner with Coastline to support the 200+ individuals living in Tripp Towers, New Bedford Housing Authority’s largest building.
