SAN DIEGO, Calif., July 29, 2021 – The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in
collaboration with Molina Healthcare of California (“Molina”), donated $20,000 to North
County Lifeline (“Lifeline”) to establish a new food pantry at Lifeline’s drop-in center, which
serves transitional youth and unhoused individuals in San Diego.
“North County Lifeline lives up to its name, providing essential resources and services to
unhoused San Diegans to help improve their wellness and quality of life,” said Abbie
Totten, plan president of Molina Healthcare of California. “MolinaCares is proud to bolster
Lifeline’s mission by working together to address social determinants of health for our
most vulnerable neighbors.”
In addition to establishing a new food pantry, the MolinaCares’ grant will help support
other services the drop-in center offers, including crisis intervention, basic needs, housing
placement, and access to showers, laundry, and computers.
“Having the MolinaCares Food Pantry at our drop-in center will provide much-needed
nutrition for transitional youth and young adults currently experiencing homelessness or
at-risk for homelessness,” said Donald Stump, executive director at North County Lifeline.
“Through this generous grant, the center will provide youth with nutritional snacks, hot
meals, food boxes, and gift cards for groceries.”
