MDwise warms the toes of families at the Concord Neighborhood Center

11/20/2012
 

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – With the winter months fast approaching, MDwise is donating new socks for newborns, children and adults at Family Night at the Concord Center – an event it is helping to host on November 27. The company has been holding a Sock Hop Drop since October 29, encouraging employees to bring in new socks, and is currently at 222 pairs and will be collecting them through November 26.
 
As Indiana’s only nonprofit managed health care organization serving Hoosiers covered by the Hoosier Healthwise, Healthy Indiana Plan and Care Select health programs, MDwise is dedicated to improving the lives of those families that need assistance the most. As the oldest and longest-running neighborhood center association in Indianapolis offering south side Indianapolis families a one-stop source for social services, the Concord Neighborhood Center was a perfect fit as the beneficiary for their Sock Hop Drop collection drive.
 
“We are always looking for new ways to get involved in the community and help out our neighbors who need it most – its part of our core values,” said Charlotte MacBeth, chief executive officer of MDwise. “Getting involved with the Concord Center and hosting the Family Night event allows us to do just that. These socks will show their members that MDwise supports them and wants them to have warm toes and feet over the cold months.”
 
The November 27 event, which is free and open to the public, will also offer free health information and screenings to attendees.
