The UnitedHealthcare Children’s Foundation is raising money for grants to help families pay for children’s medical expenses through sales of children’s books in the “Oliver & Hope” series.

The third book in the series, “Oliver & Hope’s Superhero Saturday,” was introduced recently at the North American International Toy Fair in New York City.

All three books of the “Oliver & Hope” series are available through uhccf.org/shop for $13.95 each.

Through the grant program, families can receive up to $5,000 annually per child, $10,000 lifetime maximum per child. Families do not need to have insurance through UnitedHealthcare to be eligible for a medical grant.

Last year, UHCCF awarded medical grants worth an estimated $5.4 million to more than 2,000 children across the United States.

“We created the ‘Oliver & Hope’ series to provide joy and inspiration for children. We are grateful to have received such positive feedback on the books, especially since the proceeds from the books and toys are helping children access medical care that will improve their health and quality of life,” said UHCCF President Matt Peterson.

More information about the “Oliver & Hope” books, including free audio recordings of the books as well as fun activities and downloads, can be found at Oliver & Hope’s Clubhouse at www.UHCCF.org.
