On Monday, December 18, more than 12 Health Ambassador volunteers from the Farmington-based Mott Corporation wrapped 225 toys and gifts for children and

youth in Wheeler’s foster care and other programs.

Mott employees also conducted the gift and toy drive on behalf of Wheeler.

The event is part of an ongoing, innovative collaboration between Mott and Wheeler to promote community health and wellness, and engage underserved individuals and families in Bristol and New Britain in accessing primary and behavioral healthcare information and services.

“Every child deserves to have a gift at Christmas,” said Boris Levin, president and chief executive officer of Mott.

“I’m proud that our employees were so generous in donating all of these presents, which will certainly bring smiles to many faces. “

In 2016, Mott made a commitment to Wheeler to support a pilot community health worker program that allowed Wheeler to add a full-time employee dedicated to engaging Central Connecticut families in culturally and linguistically responsive health care services.

As part of this initiative, Mott Corporation employees volunteer as Health Ambassadors.

They participate in an array of community-based health outreach activities, including recovery walks, neighborhood health and wellness fairs and events, community conversations about addiction, mental health and recovery, and events that serve children and youth in Wheeler’s foster care program.

Mott recently received the 2017 Hartford Business Journal “Health Care Heroes” award for their work in partnering with Wheeler in communities across Central Connecticut.
