Dallas Cowboys Linebacker Sean Lee recently delighted children with an appearance at the Las Vegas Trails Boys & Girls Clubs after school program at the Cambridge Court Apartments in Fort Worth. Thanks to a generous donation from UnitedHealthcare, he passed out new shoes, clothing and household necessities to the kids as he shared football tips.

Lee was joined by Scott Flannery, CEO, UnitedHealthcare of North Texas and Oklahoma, and Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price as they presented a grant from UnitedHealthcare to Sean Lee’s Dreambuilders Foundation.

Daphne Stigliano, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Tarrant County, said the grant will be used to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tarrant County’s after school programs. Fort Worth City Council Member Brian Byrd, whose council district includes the Cambridge Court Apartments, was also in attendance.

The renovation, which includes new playground equipment, picnic areas and a walking trail for the school’s SPARK Park, is possible due to more than $30,000 in grants from UnitedHealthcare, Vince Wilfork Foundation and the Dreambuilders Foundation.

After announcing the exciting news, the students participated in relay races and drills with a tackling dummy. The event concluded with a barbecue lunch.

In addition to the playground renovation, UHC is partnering with Wilfork and Blessings in a Backpack, a national nonprofit organization providing nutritious food to elementary students. As part of the program, 100 students at both Looscan Elementary and Foerster Elementary schools are presented backpacks filled with healthy weekend snacks, providing 60 percent of the children’s caloric intake over the weekend.

UHC is proud to partner with Vince Wilfork, Dreambuilders Foundation and Blessings in a Backpack to enrich the lives of Houston-area students.
