Video: Volunteer of the Year Helps People Experiencing Homelessness

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of New Mexico’s (BCBSNM) annual Volunteer of the Year award celebrates a BCBSNM employee who makes a difference in their community. In 2019, Lenora Salas Blackbird, a pharmacy operations representative at BCBSNM, was recognized for her volunteer work helping people experiencing homelessness. On Saturday nights, Lenora volunteers with Hellfighters Soul Snatchers Unit, a motorcycle ministry that provides food, clothing and shelter to about 500 homeless people each weekend in Albuquerque.

“Seeing a child’s face light up when we hand out coats and toys at Christmas time, giving hot soup and a blanket to someone in 30-degree weather, watching a family move into their first apartment after being on the streets for years, and sharing these amazing stories with my family make it all worthwhile,” Lenora said.
