AMERIGROUP Foundation Honors Warehouse of Hope Founder Craig Parson as a 'Healthy Hero'

Filling 7,000 grocery bags with food each month, in addition to providing 350 families with supplemental clothing and supplies, can take a toll. Parson and his mostly volunteer staff look no further than their daily affirmations for inspiration to continue.

"There are many stories that stand out," Parson said. "A mom relieved that her family will be provided for, a child's eyes that light up because he is
