Our Community Engagement team has collaborated with Family Health Centers, Inc. and Prisma Health Nurse-Family Partnership for supporting expectant mothers.
On June 4 in Organgeburg, Molina Healthcare of South Carolina, in collaboration with Family Health Centers, Inc., hosted a drive-thru baby shower for expectant moms, giving 100 families a bag of diapers and other essentials. This event was supported by I Serve with Joy, Family Solutions, SC Thrive, The Regional Medical Center/Safe Kids, Harvest Hope Food Bank, Orangeburg-Calhoun-Allendale-Bamberg Head Start/Early Head Start Program, and Welvista.
On May 2 in Easley, Molina Healthcare of South Carolina, in collaboration with the Prisma Health Nurse-Family Partnership, held a drive-thru maternity fair. According to the National Diaper Bank Network, one in three families struggle to afford diapers for their babies, so they cut down on food and childcare services to buy them. Participants received receive a Molina-branded sippy cup, clothing, important medical and child development information and light refreshments.
