AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, officials at FirstCare Health Plans announced another successful year supporting the Austin and Lubbock United Way Organizations—raising over twenty-five thousand dollars in employee and corporate matching contributions for the charities this year.
"We take great pride in being a part of the communities we serve," said FirstCare President/CEO Darnell Dent. "One of our core beliefs as a company is that all Texans and our communities should be healthy—and the United Way helps by providing resources to Texans in need. So when we can extend our support to an organization like the United Way, we're standing behind our belief structure and corporate mission."
This year, FirstCare's offices in Lubbock and the corporate headquarters in Austin teamed up to raise these funds—surpassing internal goals and eclipsing last year's fundraising efforts.
"I'm proud of the efforts our employees have put forth for this cause," said Dent. "It's this sense of community that sets FirstCare apart from other health plans in Texas. We are here, we are a part of the community and we're already looking forward to how we can contribute in 2017."
