As part of its mission to improve lives and communities in the Bay State, UniCare donated $5,000 to the Lowell Sun Santa Fund this month to help hundreds of families in need in the Greater Lowell area have a joyful holiday season.
UniCare general manager David Morales presented the donation to former state Sen. Steve Panagiotakos at his annual Sun Santa Fund fundraising event in Lowell on December 4, held outdoors this year.

Thanks to generous donations from local businesses and members of the community, the Lowell Sun Santa Fund has provided support for thousands of families in need in the Greater Lowell area for 32 years. Working with the Salvation Army and Community Teamwork, Inc., the Fund provides vouchers to a local toy store and grocery store to families so they can purchase gifts for their children and put a holiday meal on their table.
