UnitedHealthcare and Dreambuilders Foundation partner to donate shoes to foster children in New England

UnitedHealthcare and Henry Hunters partnered together to donate brand new shoes to foster children from Communities of People in New England. The donation was funded by a $15,000 UnitedHealthcare grant to Dreambuilders Foundation to encourage children to live an active lifestyle and spend more time playing outdoors.

Hunter Henry, a tight end on the New England Patriots, Joe Leavey, President and Founder of Communities for People, and John Madondo, CEO of UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Massachusetts, attended a brief distribution event at Dean College in Franklin, Massachusetts, where volunteers helped fit and distribute shoes to local children.
