Video: Supporting Our Community Partners During the Pandemic

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) partnered with Patriot Paws to facilitate a creative virtual volunteer opportunity for its employees. Patriot Paws trains and provides service dogs of the highest quality to disabled American veterans and others with mobile disabilities at no cost. Working from the safety of their homes, BCBSTX employees and their families prepared food bags that the nonprofit organization could use for their dogs in training. As the COVID-19 pandemic challenges society’s ability to gather in public, this serves as one of the many inspirational stories of volunteerism in our new virtual reality.
