The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration with Passport Health Plan by Molina Healthcare (“Molina”), donated $100,000 to the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky to support millions of residents struggling after severe flooding in southeastern Kentucky.
“We are thankful to partner with MolinaCares and Passport Health Plan by Molina Healthcare to bring some relief to Eastern Kentucky,” said Gerry Roll, executive director at the Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky. “With so much damage to roads, homes, and water systems, and so many people displaced, we are especially grateful for this support. The MolinaCares Accord donation will enable us to help family farmers, small businesses, and local nonprofits that are in need.”
The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky is a community foundation focused on improving the quality of life in southeastern Kentucky. Together with partners at the Appalachian Impact Fund and Appalachian for Appalachia, they launched the Southeast Kentucky Flood Relief Fund to provide aid to Eastern Kentuckians suffering from the recent floods. The Foundation provides emergency grants to assist residents of affected Appalachian counties with purchasing food, clothing, and cleaning supplies, as well as finding shelter and making repairs.
“We are committed to supporting Kentuckians with immediate flood recovery efforts,” said Ryan Sadler, plan president of Passport Health Plan by Molina Healthcare. “As invested citizens in the communities we serve, we realize it is difficult to make health care a priority when so many are concerned with the challenges of daily life. We hope this donation makes it a little easier for those impacted by the devastating floods to care for themselves and their loved ones.”
