A new school year brings excitement, sparked by the thrill of back-to-school shopping. However, for many at Redwood Elementary School and the surrounding West Valley community, the start of the school year instead means added expenses and overwhelming stress to somehow make ends meet.

Molina Healthcare of Utah recently partnered with Redwood Elementary, Granite Education Foundation, and Salt Lake City Mission to host a back-to-school event, aiming to reach more in the community and alleviate back-to-school burdens. The event provided hundreds of families and individuals with basics from school supplies and haircuts to immunizations and mental health resources.

Inside Redwood Elementary, each student got a haircut and picked up a new pair of shoes and new backpacks filled with school supplies to kick off the year. Students also received resources from the YMCA, Community Nursing Services, Salt Lake County Libraries, and West Valley City.

Outside the school, adult community members received new shoes and haircuts, plus food, face painting, and bounce houses for all to enjoy. West Valley City Police and Fire departments also provided resources and truck tours.

“Molina Healthcare of Utah is pleased to provide a new pair of shoes, socks, and underwear to all 610 Redwood students,” said Brandon Hendrickson, president of Molina Healthcare of Utah. “Molina is committed to ensuring that children have the necessary resources for a good education. We are proud to be a part of an event that connects families with a variety of services, making Salt Lake City stronger.
