Highmark Bright Blue Futures Employee Volunteer Challenge — Moving Forward in Innovative Ways

We hosted the first-ever Highmark Bright Blue Futures Employee Volunteer Challenge this past September. Employees pitched their ideas to make an impact on Community Health in our local regions through volunteerism and projects occurring across the enterprise footprint. Winning submissions from each location were awarded funds to cover supplies and materials, and a donation to the chosen nonprofit organization. Employees in four states, and seven physical locations volunteered, providing support to organizations like the American Red Cross in Parkersburg and Sisters Lifting as We Climb in Pittsburgh.

Volunteering at The Buffalo Naval Park

Our employees volunteered at The Buffalo Naval Park: Day of Giving in Buffalo, New York. We partnered with National Grid to co-sponsor the event. And volunteers worked all day to maintain and repair the three main ships housed in the park. From gardening to chipping away rust on the ships, to painting and cleaning the ships, it was a day filled with productivity.
