Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts will remain open although in a very limited capacity to provide support for urgent and access to care needs. In order to have a greater impact on the communities we serve and provide all Blue Cross associates with an opportunity to volunteer, some of our service centers will be operating with reduced staffing. We appreciate your patience, and we will resume normal business operations on Thursday, September 18, 2014.
Selecting Community Partners
Each of our community partners submitted an application to work with us on Service Day. A team of associates selected the organizations based on how closely their proposals aligned with our four priorities of community impact. The selected applicants also demonstrated how they planned to engage 80+ volunteers in a full day of meaningful service, and how our support would positively affect the communities they serve. In addition to the community service project, these partners also receive a $5,000 grant.
