United Way of El Paso officials announced Tuesday that they will receive critical funding from Superior HealthPlan in 2021, helping support a variety of local causes to benefit the El Paso area.
“We are incredibly grateful to Superior HealthPlan employees for their generous contribution, which comes at a critical time for our community,” said Deborah Zuloaga, President & CEO, United Way of El Paso County. “Their support will allow us to continue our work in the community and support those in need.”
The funding comes from employee donations made during an annual campaign held by Superior HealthPlan.
United Way of El Paso County serves the borderland, supporting those in need in the areas of health, education, financial stability, and basic needs.
This includes providing funds for essential programs through our Community Impact Fund, supporting El Pasoans impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic through the El Paso United Community Resiliency Center, and helping El Pasoans obtain necessary medications through SingleCare prescriptions savings card program.
Each year, Superior HealthPlan employees support Texas chapters of United Way, donating more than $1.3 million over the past six years. That includes more than $305,000 to nine chapters across Texas in 2021, with nearly 3,100 employees pledging to contribute during the campaign.
“We are so proud to support United Way of El Paso once again this year, especially as so many in the El Paso area are dealing with COVID-19,” said Mark Sanders, President and CEO of Superior HealthPlan.
“I am grateful for our employees and their commitment to giving back, and am proud to partner with local organizations like United Way to transform the health of Texas communities, one person at a time.”
