Take a look at some of the ways we've supported the health and well-being of our communities.
2021 – Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas Sports Equipment Donation
MedExpress donated more than 900 pieces of new sports equipment to Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas. The equipment, provided in partnership with Good Sports, a national nonprofit working to create equitable access to sports for kids, included playground balls, hula hoops, jump ropes, basketballs, soccer balls, softball bats, baseball bats, volleyballs, and dodgeballs. Items will be incorporated into Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas' healthy lifestyle programming, helping to bolster existing sports leagues and encourage more girls to participate.
2021 - Greenbrier County Wellness Week
For over four years, MedExpress has been proud to partner with the Greenbrier County Schools in West Virginia to support their Wellness Champion Program. The program aims to combat childhood diseases associated with obesity and a lack of physical activity through nutrition education, access to healthy snacks, staff wellness resources, physical education, and tobacco-use prevention.
Through this partnership, MedExpress provided a variety of resources to support Wellness Week in the schools. More than 400 pre-K through second grade students participated in MedExpress' virtual germy hands program where they learned the importance of life-long healthy habits like basic hygiene and proper hand washing techniques.
2020 – Boys & Girls Clubs of America Food Program Donation
MedExpress proudly partnered with local chapters of Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGC) to donate nearly $40,000 to help combat food insecurity in Florida and Pennsylvania. We were able to help local BGC chapters provide more than 7,000 hot meals for club members and their families.

Supporting Local Athletes
Emily, Director of Communications, Community & Company Initiatives at MedExpress: As a neighborhood medical center, we care about the health and wellbeing of our communities, and that care goes from not just the care we provide in our centers, but that goes out into our communities as well. Amber Killberg, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Good Sports: Good Sports gives all kids the lifelong benefits of sport and physical activity by providing equipment, apparel and footwear to those most in need. So, when we have an opportunity to work with a partner like MedExpress, we look for a good match. That’s what we did with Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas. Andre’ Bradley, Athletic Director of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas: We get kids from all types of walks. Some need more than others, some need less than others, but all of them need a little attention and a little love. Emily: Thank you so much for letting us be here today. This stuff is for you guys. Cindy Doramus, Chief Executive Officer of Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Arkansas: I hope I can put it all into words; it is amazing. And I cannot say thank you enough to MedExpress and to Good Sports for all you’re doing to make this possible. Andre’: The impact to kids, it shows them that somebody cares. Cindy: And this goes so perfectly with our healthy lifestyles program. For over the past year, kids have sat at home. It’s time to get out and get some exercise. Emily: Making sure that kids have what they need to get out there and be active and stay healthy. Cindy: When the kids see that someone like MedExpress cared enough about them and their health. It means so much to them. Andre’: I appreciate everything that they’re doing. I appreciate them coming to spend their time here today. I just want to say thank you.
