Blue Corps Team
Community support occurs at many levels. From sponsoring projects related to BCBSNM health initiatives to taking part in blood drives, food drives, and fundraisers, we strive to be active participants in our community. BCBSNM also promotes employee volunteerism through the BlueCorps team. We are proud to sponsor events that benefit New Mexicans.
Operation Back to School
For more than 25 years, BCBSNM employees have generously donated time and money to provide school supplies for New Mexico's students in need. Our employees come together to support education and assist young children in need by collecting and donating school supplies. BCBSNM understands it is critical for students to have the tools they need to be successful in the classroom. That is why each year, our employees donate tens of thousands of supplies to at-risk students.
Blue Cross has a strong record of commitment to United Way. Each year BCBSNM and its employees contribute to the many partner agencies served by United Way, providing support for people in need. United Way of Central New Mexico partners with organizations and programs to help improve the quality of life for New Mexicans. BCBSNM is committed to the future of the United Way, just as the United Way is committed to the people of this state.
BCBSNM employees provide holiday presents for families in need. The families are quite diverse. They include single moms, grandparents raising grandkids, military families with a deployed parent, or even new parents anxiously awaiting a birth. BCBSNM employees schedule fundraising events – bake sales, auctions, or enchilada lunches – to generate money to complete the families' wish lists.
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
BCBSNM is a sponsor of the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk each year. Making Strides is one of the largest fundraiser walks in New Mexico. BCBSNM team captains sell T-shirts and employees raise money for this worthwhile cause, and BCBSNM has one of the largest corporate walk teams on the walk course.
