Giving Back to Our Community
At GoMedigap, our commitment and involvement in the community is an important part of the way we do business. We are proud to sponsor and support organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels and more.
Meals on Wheels of Williamson County
GoMedigap started volunteering for Meals on Wheels in Round Rock, Texas in 2013. Every week for 5 years, two of our employees take time off work to deliver meals to the elderly in our community. For 6 years, GoMedigap has been the sole financial sponsor for the Christmas Day meal delivery.
Even in the face of federal budget cuts, the Meals on Wheels program in Round Rock is currently serving 60-65 meals a week to seniors who otherwise may not be receiving the nutrition they need. Everyone at GoMedigap is proud to support and participate in a program like Meals on Wheels. Learn more about the difference Meals on Wheels is making for our community in this article by the Austin American-Statesman.
The Baca Center
In 2013, GoMedigap began donating, volunteering and participating in events at the Allen R. Baca Center for Senior and Community Activities in Round Rock, Texas. The Baca Center offers educational classes, exercise classes and facilities, and social events for anyone over 50 years old. Previously, we have hosted workshops about the Open Enrollment Period for Medicare Supplement Insurance. We have also participated in their annual Health and Information Fair.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity brings communities and people together to create and sustain home ownership, with a vision where everyone has a decent place to live with hope and dignity. Starting in 2016, GoMedigap has proudly sponsored the build of a house each year for Habitat for Humanity. Employees have also volunteered at the builds each year. In 2017, employees had the opportunity to build the actual frame of the house from start to finish.
Thanksgiving Meal Delivery
During Thanksgiving, GoMedigap employees sponsor meals for First United Methodist Church of Round Rock's Thanksgiving Meal delivery. A few days before Thanksgiving, GoMedigap employees also volunteer to pick up meals and deliver them to homes of those in need in the surrounding area.

99 & 1
99 & 1 provides stable family support to vulnerable children aging out of the foster care system, who are susceptible to homelessness and a life of crime. GoMedigap contributes financially to 99 & 1.
Among the vast number of orphaned and vulnerable children, children living with HIV can be considered the "least of the least" as they are often overlooked or unseen. Cherish Uganda exists to restore life and create hope for a future for children living with HIV. GoMedigap contributes financially to Cherish Uganda.
Austin Pets Alive!
Austin Pets Alive! has a mission to promote and provide the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals. GoMedigap raised money to buy food and toys for Austin's largest and longest running no-kill animal shelter.
By developing comprehensive, innovative programs that targeted key groups of animals and pulling directly from euthanasia lists, Austin Pets Alive! has saved more than 25,000 dogs and cats since 2008.
Ben Hur Shrine Circus
GoMedigap has donated annually since 2011.
Round Rock Rotary Reindeer Run
The Reindeer Run benefits the expansion of the Play for All Abilities Park. GoMedigap sponsored the event, and employees participated in the 5K run.
Brown Santa ensures kids from low-income families receive at least 2 gifts each Christmas from donations. In 2016, GoMedigap sponsored 2 single parents and employees brought toys for various age groups.
