FirstCare Health Plans Continuing Support for United Way

AUSTIN, Texas, June 4, 2018 /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, combined, in employee and corporate matching contributions for the charities in 2017.

"FirstCare employees 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 us support that belief by providing resources to Texans in need. And, as we saw with a number of large-scale events in Texas over the past year, when we can extend our support to 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 while continuing to contribute to an organization helping their communities, as well as the rest of Texas.

"I'm proud of our employees' efforts for this cause," said Dent. "This bond and sense of community 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 continue contributing throughout the remainder of 2018 and beyond."
