ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Jan. 13, 2023 – The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of New Mexico (“Molina”), recently partnered with the New Mexico Caregivers Coalition and the New Mexico Association for the Education of Young Children to give back to New Mexico caregivers who have gone above and beyond serving their community through the MolinaCares Care GIVING Tree initiative.
Over the holidays, MolinaCares gathered nominations for extraordinary caregivers across the state and is rewarding over 70 caregivers working with New Mexicans of all ages with New Mexico Harvest Holiday Boxes.Boxes are filled with non-perishable, locally-grown and locally-made food items from New Mexico farmers.
“Caregivers work tirelessly and generously to serve our most vulnerable populations across the state,” said Carolyn Ingram, plan president of Molina Healthcare of New Mexico. “As we navigate a caregiver shortage in New Mexico, we recognized the importance of giving back to these hardworking individuals. We congratulate all our winners and extend our gratitude for their work.”
In addition to receiving a New Mexico Harvest box, nominees were featured on a physical Care GIVING Tree located at Molina’s Help Center in Gallup and Molina’s New Mexico headquarters in Albuquerque.
