UnitedHealthcare of North Texas Contributes $5,000 to Plano Families in Need

UnitedHealthcare of North Texas has contributed $5,000 to Christmas Cops, a program operated by the Plano Police Department that helps local families in need.

UnitedHealthcare’s donation will purchase healthy meals, children’s toys, jackets and other household necessities. Police officers make direct referrals to the program, often submitting families they encounter during burglary investigations, family disturbances, traffic stops and other daily service calls.

Since its inception in 1984, the program has grown to serve more than 300 local families annually, including 650 children.

With help from UnitedHealthcare, the Dallas Cowboys visited area children’s hospitals on Dec. 4.

Players and cheerleaders brought gifts and signed autographs for patients at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Cook Children’s Medical Center, Children’s Medical Center Dallas and Medical City Children’s Hospital.

Each child received a “game sock” loaded with goodies from the Cowboys and a special toy provided by the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation.

UnitedHealthcare of North Texas returned as a presenting sponsor for the 2017 Flowserve Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon at AT&T Stadium on August 30.

The annual event celebrates the beginning of the NFL season. During the luncheon, numerous awards are presented, including the Ed Block Courage Award presented by UnitedHealthcare.

This year’s recipient was Jim Maurer, the Cowboys’ head athletic trainer. Maurer was recognized by his peers for his constant professionalism in his commitment to providing players with the highest quality care.

All proceeds from the Flowserve Cowboys Kickoff Luncheon and silent auction benefit the Courage House at Happy Hill Farms and the North Central Texas Academy. In light of the destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey in South Texas, Happy Hill Farms announced they will be using the funds raised to help students, families and alumni affected by the disaster.
