Company Wide Service Day

Service Day

On our seventh annual Service Day, over 3,100 Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts associates volunteered in support of 55 service sites across the Commonwealth. Together with our nonprofit partners we provided critical support to address community needs focused on healthy living. This day is the most popular event for our associates as they come together to serve across the state.

Community Gardens

“Growth opportunity” takes on a fun new meaning in our company gardens program, where you can dig in the dirt, learn how to plant crops, connect with nature and fellow colleagues, and harvest what you sow.

As big fans of green energy and a healthier planet, we’re proud to support solar projects in Hopedale and Mendon, Massachusetts — two efforts that have collectively increased the amount of solar-generated power in Massachusetts by 13%
