Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (Blue Cross) will hold its first day of community service, Blue across Rhode Island, as part of its BlueAngel Community Outreach platform.
More than 700 employees will contribute in excess of 3,200 volunteer hours in a single day, supporting more than twenty Rhode Island nonprofits in efforts to help make a special impact within our communities.
