KaBOOM! is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a safe playground within walking distance of every child in the United States. Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) partnered with KaBOOM! to build a playground with our community partner, St. Bonaventure Indian Mission and School, located in Thoreau, NM. BCBSNM provided more than $80,000 for the playground project that reaches nearly 3,000 children annually. In just over six hours, 200 volunteers constructed a bright and safe playground on the St. Bonaventure Mission and School site. During 2014, BCBSNM plans to build another KaBOOM! playground and will continue to increase access to play for the children of in New Mexico’s communities.
