Molina Healthcare presented a $500 donation at the Wee Can Academy - Ross Avenue campus on December 21, 2018.
Wee Can Academy - Ross Avenue was chosen as one of three finalists to receive a check in the amount of $500 from Molina Healthcare as part of a company-wide challenge. Molina Healthcare recently helped accomplish a playground revitalization at Wee Can Academy. The organization awarded the school with an extra donation to purchase any needed items in the classrooms or for the playground. A check presentation and small ceremony took place at the school on December 21, 2018.
Earlier this year, Molina Healthcare donated new equipment and almost 30 volunteers donated their time to install and spruce up the preschool playground at Wee Can Academy - Ross Avenue. Members of the Texans Can facilities staff joined in with Molina Healthcare’s volunteers to help.
Over two days, Molina Healthcare provided the equipment and tools along with their employees to build a sandbox in the Toddler Play Area, install rubber mulching in the playground, make various improvements to the garden, install new soccer and basketball goals and much more. In addition, the organization donated and delivered new tricycles, helmets, wagons and push cars to the preschool.
“We are very thankful for Molina Healthcare and all they have done for Wee Can Academy - Ross Avenue with their playground revitalization,” said Feleasha Nelson, child care director for Wee Can Academy - Ross Avenue. “The organization’s continued interest in Wee Can is humbling and we could not be more grateful for their donations and support of the school. The children love the playground and we are eager to provide additional resources to the school with the help of Molina Healthcare.”
The mission of Wee Can Academy is to provide a safe, nurturing and educational environment for children and to partner with and support the families that are a part of the school. Wee Can Academy provides daily programs designed to enrich the lives of infants and toddlers and after school care for grade school children through play, social and academic activities that provide experiences to stimulate the physical, emotional and cognitive growth of each child.
