Dallas Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford and UnitedHealthcare of North Texas recently teamed up to donate new gym equipment to Dallas’ Voice of Hope Ministries, a non-profit organization that provides after-school and out-of-school care to low income children from pre-k to 12th grade. Crawford joined UnitedHealthcare leaders at a dedication ceremony at Voice of Hope on January 10.
Houston Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph and UnitedHealthcare have teamed up to provide new playground equipment for special-needs students at Houston Independent School District’s T.H. Rogers School.
UnitedHealthcare donated $11,000 to Joseph’s Dreambuilders program, which is part of a national non-profit organization that works with pro athletes across the country to help kids receive the items, opportunities and equipment they need to reach their dreams.
With Joseph cheering them on, students demoed the equipment, including slides, a water table, swings and wheelchair swings—all ADA-accessible. The new playground equipment will enhance T.H.Rogers School’s mission of providing all students with the educational opportunity to develop to their fullest potential.
