WellCare is a mission-driven organization where our associates believe in giving back to the communities where we live and serve.
However, it’s the dedication of our more than 9,000 associates that make WellCare’s community efforts unique. Approximately 75 percent of our associates participate in WellCare Associate Volunteer Efforts (WAVE) each year—more than double the national average. But equally as significant, many of our associates serve multiple times throughout the year. Volunteerism is embedded in our culture and serves as a beacon for how our associates choose to live our mission and our values.
In April, for the first year ever, WellCare participated in National Volunteer Month. In total, more than 3,700 associates volunteered more than 11,000 hours with 113 nonprofit organizations across the country.
Among these efforts, associates built homes and sorted materials with Habitat for Humanity in Florida and Tennessee; packed meals for Elijah’s Promise in New Jersey and Meals on Wheels in Texas; served lunch at the Salvation Army in Missouri; supported athletes through the Special Olympics in California; prepared meals at St. Vincent De Paul in Arizona and cleaned up Jackson Zoo in Mississippi, among others.
And, our efforts have only just begun. Take a look at WellCare’s Facebook page to see photos of our associates working in their local communities.
