On Monday, October 17th, Optum sponsored a “Let’s Give Back to the Community” event at the NASHP Conference in Pittsburgh. Conference attendees volunteered to pack “welcome kits” for the Chartiers’ consumers who are either homeless or find themselves transitioning into supportive housing. Whatever their circumstance, the backpacks provide needed essentials for anyone starting over. The event was coordinated by Hands on Twin Cities and Optum. Thank you to all who participated.
Chartiers’ staff have already started passing out the bags and we look forward to being able to help so many needy individuals. Giving back never felt so good.
