On Service Day, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts remained open for urgent access to care needs, although in a limited capacity. In order to have a greater impact on the communities we serve and give all of our associates an opportunity to volunteer, some of our service centers operated with reduced staffing. Thank you for your patience.

Selecting Community Partners
Our Service Day projects are inspired and shaped by the needs of our community partners. Non-profit organizations submit a request for proposal (RFP) describing the work they would like completed. A group of Blue Cross associates, who are members of the BlueCrew Leadership Council, select which organizations we will partner with based on three primary categories: how closely their mission aligns with our healthy living focus, how well the project will accommodate a group of 60-80 volunteers, and the level of positive impact the project will have on the communities they serve. In addition to the community service project, each Service Day partner receives a $5,000 grant.
Since our founding 79 years ago, we've been committed to strengthening the communities we serve.
We know that there are no simple solutions to the challenges of health care. This is especially true for the children and families in our most vulnerable communities, where health outcomes are tied to a complex mix of education, poverty, and the physical environment. Building on our legacy of innovation, we have evolved the approach of our Corporate Citizenship work to align with our business strategy. Our hope is to create a measurable and sustainable impact on healthy living by supporting programs and organizations that foster healthy eating, healthy, active lifestyles, and healthy environments.
