MVP Health Care Donates Winter Coats
MVCAA will be able to keep some families a lot warmer this winter thanks to the generosity of MVP Health Care. MVP Health Care donated 60 new winter coats to the Agency just in time for the cold weather. The anti-poverty Agency works with families throughout Oneida and Herkimer Counties, and will be distributing the coats to those families being helped by its Early Head Start Program and Community Action Angels. “We would like to thank the staff of MVP for reaching out to MVCAA and helping us continue our mission of Helping People, Changing Lives.” Evon M. Ervin, Deputy Director.
MVCAA’s Early Head Start program promotes healthy prenatal outcomes and healthy family functioning, and strengthens the development of infants and toddlers beginning as young as newborn infants. It is a free and confidential program that works with pregnant women and families with infants and toddlers up to 3 years of age, as well as, children with special needs. The Community Action Angels is a network of volunteers who seek donations from the community and distribute items—personal hygiene, household, clothing, etc.—to families in need.
“So many children and their families in our community don’t have the ability to purchase a new warm, winter coat, and we all know how quickly children can grow out of a coat! The generosity of MVP Health Care will keep many children warm and healthy this year.” Amy Turner, Executive Director.
