Corizon Health team members demonstrate holiday spirit across the country

Corizon Health team members demonstrate holiday spirit across the countryThroughout the months of November and December, Corizon Health team members were caught in the act of spreading the holiday spirit in their local communities through charitable events such as food drives and gift donations.

In Brentwood, Tennessee, a group of volunteers from the corporate office which included President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Bowers headed to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee to sort and box Thanksgiving food donations. Their efforts resulted in 17,000 pounds of food being sorted in just a few short hours – enough to provide meals for 400 families in 46 counties. Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, team members volunteered with the Thanksgiving Outreach Program, where they sorted and packaged meals which were then delivered to less fortunate members of the community. Multiple low income families in St. Louis had a warm dinner on Thanksgiving thanks to the work of those who volunteered.

Continuing into the Christmas season, St. Louis team members also collected and donated presents for 125 kids from Mission Gate Ministry through their Christmas Angel Mission. In Tennessee, staff from the corporate office “adopted” 50 children through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program. The “angels” received their gifts just in time for Christmas. Team members from the Arizona State Prison Complex – Alhambra in Phoenix, Arizona, along with Arizona Department of Corrections staff, sponsored an entire kindergarten class from a school district in need. The kindergartners enjoyed a holiday party complete with food and take-away goody bags for each boy and girl, as well as a gift from their personal Santa wish list.

We’re grateful for the generosity of our Corizon Health team members during the holidays, and every day.
