Have you ever knitted, crocheted or sewn a hat? How about hand-making more than 500 hats and then giving them to charity?
That’s exactly what the Humana Charity Crafters recently did, hand-making more than 500 hats, breast cancer pillows, blankets and stuffed animals to benefit cancer patients at Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center. The donation was in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October and Make a Difference Day on Oct. 27.

As some workers choose to remain in the workforce and delay retirement, the next generation is beginning their careers.
At Humana, one way we improve the health of our communities is by thriving together with our healthcare partners.
Iora Primary Care, a Humana healthcare partner, focuses on providing primary care designed specifically for the needs of people 65 and older on Medicare. The staff at each Iora location takes the time to understand their patient’s needs, addressing healthcare holistically and demonstrating a strong healthy commitment to overcoming health barriers.
At Humana, one way we improve the health of our members is by finding our purpose together. Having a purpose in life and connecting with your local community increases well-being.
Humana Charity Crafters, a group of Humana members in Mesa, Ariz., meet twice a month to create hats and other crafts that benefit their community. By making hats for local cancer patients, the Charity Crafters connect to their sense of purpose and to each other, creating strong bonds and encouraging each other towards their best health.
At Humana, one way we focus on the health of employees is the 100 Day Dash. We walk together as a company on our journey toward lifelong well-being. And, we share our healthy lifestyle, inspiring others to work on their own health and well-being.
When your schedule is crammed full of work obligations and caregiving for family members, how do you squeeze in some much-needed “me time?”
If you take the advice of Domenica Robinson, Humana’s 2017 Volunteer of the Year, you’d find a volunteer activity that makes you feel happy and connected to your local community.
“Giving back to my community gives me ‘me time.’ It’s what I do for myself to feel good while also giving back to my community,” Domenica said. “I truly enjoy volunteering and giving people a little sunshine in their day – it makes me feel so good.”
