Creating a Legacy of Community Care
More than 3,700 Mosaic Life Care caregivers are committed to helping our community by volunteering their time and talents toward a variety of causes.
We are proud to partner with a number of organizations that offer much needed support to the people who make up the fabric of this incredible community including Second Harvest Community Food Bank, Food for Kids and more.
In an effort to deliver a message of health and wellness and to fight adult and childhood obesity, we have developed programs like 4th Grade Challenge and the K-JO 105.5 Pound Plunge. We also support youth teams across the area to encourage physical activity.
4th Grade Challenge Volunteer
“I wanted to work with kids in St. Joseph and I like being able to encourage healthy choices that will last a lifetime.”
Hyde Elementary School Counselor and Backpack Buddies Coordinator
“It’s so hard to hear a child say, ‘We don’t have a lot of food at home.’ But the kids get so excited on Backpack Buddies day. This program is making an incredible impact on the health and well-being of these children.”
“Full stomachs facilitate learning. And most of these children simply don’t have access to fresh fruits and vegetables. I love watching their eyes light up on apple day!”
1st Grade Teacher
“You can tell when a kid hasn’t eaten breakfast. It affects their schoolwork. Backpack Buddies takes a lot of stress off these families and provides healthy options some kids wouldn’t normally have access to. ”
K-JO 105.5 Pound Plunge Participant
“I’ve lost almost 40 pounds doing the K-JO 105.5 Pound Plunge and I can definitely see a difference in my health. I have less back pain and I’m not sick as often as I used to be.”
Director, Food for Kids
“We provide 150 lunches a day during the summer break and sometimes it’s the only meal these kids will eat that day. Because of Mosaic Life Care, the kids get healthy food and fresh produce."
Mosaic Life Care provides healthy food and fresh produce for Food for Kids, a summer lunch program that feeds hungry children.
“This is a great way to get kids active. It is so important to support our youth — they’re the future of this community, and Mosaic Life Care recognizes that.”
Last year, Mosaic Life Care sponsored 67 youth teams – providing uniforms, equipment, transportation and entry fees for tournaments. Additionally, Mosaic Life Care gave $4,000 in scholarships to help give kids who couldn’t afford to play, a chance to get in the game.
