Fall Grins2 – Help 2 Children with 1 Donation
Sep 1 – Sep 30 all-day

Send Smiles to Children in Hospitals this Fall!
Dates: 9/1 – 9/30

Did you know that the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF) delivered 848 Oliver® the Bear plush toys and 251 Grins to Go® activity bags last year to kids who were hospitalized?

These gifts brought joy to not just ONE but TWO children! While one child in a hospital received a healthy dose of laughter and inspiration from the Grins2 gift, these contributions also helped a second child receive the medical treatment they need through a UHCCF medical grant.

This September, you can help the UHCCF team continue to deliver a dose of smiles. You can purchase any UHCCF product and have it delivered to one of the participating organizations as part of the Grins2 program. It’s the easiest way to make two kids feel great when they need it most.

Together, we really DO change lives!
