As a global health care leader, McKesson focuses its community impact work on initiatives that create healthier communities.
Our partnership with McKesson began in 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. McKesson turned to United Way of Metropolitan Dallas to make a broad impact when so many North Texans were struggling. Along with Texas Instruments, Bank of America and Perot Foundation, McKesson made an initial funding commitment in our Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund. Each organization generously provided $250,000 to seed the fund, and we worked with community leaders, funders, school districts, and local service providers to identify resource and service gaps to begin planning for long-term recovery. Proceeds went directly to community-based organizations assisting those most impacted by the pandemic, helping tens of thousands of our neighbors weather the unprecedented challenges created by COVID-19.
