Earth Day Clean up with Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island

In celebration of Earth Day, 30 Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) employees from the Finance and Human Resources divisions spent the day completing a major clean-up effort at Crossroads Rhode Island’s main location.  Working in conjunction with Crossroads staff and clients, the joint efforts created a safe and respectful environment for Crossroads residents and clients.

“BCBSRI is proud to support Crossroads and their work to assist individuals and families impacted by homelessness by providing crisis intervention, vocational resources, and housing,” said Mike Hudson, executive vice president and chief financial officer.  “Volunteerism is central to BCBSRI’s corporate culture and we appreciate the countless BlueAngel volunteers who donate their time and talent to organizations in our community every day.”

As part of the activities, BCBSRI associates weeded and planted new flowers in the Women’s Shelter garden, installed sod by the rear entrance, cleaned the community and family rooms, sorted and organized donations in the emergency pantry, assisted our chef in meal preparation and the cleaning of the kitchen .  BCBSRI donated all cleaning and gardening supplies and supplied lunch for all participants.  This was the fifth year BCBSRI participated in this annual event.

Crossroads Rhode Island offers an environment that ensures the feeling of security and respect for all, including maintaining a green friendly environment for clients and staff.

“We believe it is important to have grounds and facilities that are clean and well maintained as part of creating an environment of dignity and respect,” said Anne Nolan, president, Crossroads Rhode Island.  “We are grateful to have long time community partners, like BCBSRI, who share our vision and values the overall health and wellness of our clients and our earth.”
