Molina Healthcare of Michigan hosted its second annual Molina HOPE Winter Coat Giveaway to celebrate the conclusion of its nine-week coat drive. As a result of donations from the general public and partner organizations, the coat drive generated over 4,000 new coats.

Molina employees and volunteers from Second Ebenezer Church distributed the coats to individuals who pre-registered, along with the general public, on a first-come, first-served basis.* Due to the high volume of pre-registrations, coats available for general distribution were limited. The event was free and open to the public.

Other activities available for children and their families to enjoy included:

· Free scarves, hats and gloves distributed by Magna International, who donated $80,000 to the coat drive

· Refreshments and snacks

· Free haircuts

· Dr. Cleo, Molina’s popular cat doctor mascot, greeting and taking photos with event guests

· Arts, crafts and much more!

· MIX 92.3 playing live music and handing out giveaways
