The dedication of Blue Cross volunteers has earned us recognition for running one of the most successful corporate food drives in the state; donating nearly 1,500 volunteer hours at Habitat for Humanity worksites; and growing more than 750 pounds of fresh produce at our onsite Community Giving Gardens.
