For its annual holiday program, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico (BCBSNM) partnered with Wainwright Manor, an assisted living facility for Adopt-a-Senior. BCBSNM employees donated gifts to 64 seniors at Wainwright. For many seniors, gifts donated by our employees were the only gifts the seniors received during the holidays. Our employees, along with Blue Bear℠, made the delivery a special event for the seniors, which brought smiles and heartfelt appreciation.
Continuing in the holiday spirit, BCBSNM employees provided 260 blankets to the P.A.C.E program at Innovage. P.A.C.E. is an innovative Medicare program for older adults living with disabilities.
Additionally, BCBSNM donated more than $700 to the Commanche Elementary Cub Program, which supports food backpacks to children, ensuring they have access to food on the weekends, and more than $3,800 to The Storehouse food pantry in Albuquerque.
