May 19th, state Rep. Amos Quick was out doing good in the local community. In recognition of Get Caught Reading Month, Rep. Quick joined Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan and Anita Bachmann of UnitedHealthcare to host story time for 60 local pre-K students at Hampton Elementary and Guilford Child Development. Students present at each event received free copies of the book, Oliver & Hope’s Good Deeds Day, and a surprise visit from Health E. Hound.
Good Deeds Day is now on sale now through the UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation (UHCCF), with 100 percent of proceeds going to help fund medical grants for children in North Carolina and throughout the country. Since 2013, UHCCF has awarded more than 280 grants, totaling more than $637,000, to families in North Carolina, and the foundation is seeking to award more this year.
