Molina Healthcare of Washington recently teamed up with Safe Kids of Snohomish County and other local organizations to provide resources and education at the City of Lynnwood’s Fair on 44th. At this free community block party, Molina provided 216 youth with helmets to encourage bicycle safety. Staff from Molina and Safe Kids of Snohomish County conducted bike helmet fittings with the young attendees to ensure a safe fit. Guests also had the opportunity to get free health screenings such as blood pressure checks, watch fire extinguisher demonstrations and enjoy refreshments from a local food truck.
Employees participated in the event as part of the company’s Helping Hands employee volunteer program. The purpose of the program is to encourage Molina employees to get involved in their community by providing paid time off to do direct volunteer work with local organizations such as after-school programs and food pantries.
