This past September, UnitedHealthcare donated 300 pairs of new athletic shoes to clients of the San Diego Rescue Mission.  This event was made possible by the donation of $22,000 from UnitedHealthcare, which was used to purchase the 300 pairs of new shoes for the men, women, and children at the San Diego Rescue Mission. Employee volunteers and leaders from UnitedHealthcare were on site at the Rescue Mission distributing the shoes and interacting with the clients at the Rescue Mission.  

The Dreambuilders Foundation is an organization that UnitedHealthcare works with across the country to help facilitate these events.
