Other Community Activities
In 2013, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico volunteers also participated by forming teams to support the American Heart Walk, American Lung Walk, and the Junior Diabetes Research Foundation Walk. Since all three organizations are Community Partners, they also benefit from our Matching Dollars program.
Additionally, our employees collected food, toiletries, and games for members of the armed forces. Over 230 pounds of these supplies were given to the Rio Grande Blue Star Mothers for distribution.
Lastly, members of the Proud to Be Blue℠ committee created 500 personal care packages for the homeless population of St. Martin’s Hospitality Center in Albuquerque.
