Superior HealthPlan Donates Funds and 450 Disaster Kits to YWCA El Paso to Support Childcare Expenses During COVID-19 Pandemic
EL PASO, Texas (April 16, 2020) – In response to COVID-19, Superior HealthPlan is pleased to announce a financial donation as well as 450 disaster kits to YWCA El Paso del Norte Region (YWCA). The donations will support the organization’s efforts to provide quality childcare services to essential workers, including first responders, doctors, nurses and others who must continue to work during this time.
“As a result of school closures due to COVID-19, there is an even greater need to provide childcare for thousands of people across the El Paso area,” said Mark Sanders, President and CEO of Superior. “YWCA El Paso is helping to fill that gap by not only remaining open, but expanding the number of children they can serve. That’s why we’re proud to offer them our support during this time of need.”
Childcare services from YWCA provide fun, engaging and educational programming for children across four El Paso locations. In addition, tutors will be available on site during this time to assist with any distance learning assignments for school-aged children.
“Our fellow El Pasoans are working hard to keep our city operational, healthy and safe, and our goal is to support them by providing childcare to those who need it,” said Sylvia Acosta, Ph.D., CEO of YWCA. “We are so grateful to have the support of Superior HealthPlan and for the resources they have provided to make our work possible.”
Superior first opened its doors in 1999 in El Paso. Today, the organization serves more than 54,000 members in the El Paso area and more than 1.3 million statewide. Superior also has more than 400 employees in the region, helping to support healthcare initiatives throughout Texas.
YWCA El Paso was one of three YWCAs across the country to receive contributions and disaster kits from the Centene Corporation.
