Independence associates achieve community rock star status

Nearly 350 Independence Blue Cross associates achieved community rock star status by volunteering their time for a variety of community service projects as part of United Way’s Days of Caring initiative. 

Be a Community Rock Star, Independence’s 2017 campaign for the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey annual drive —encouraged associates at the region’s largest health insurer to take center stage and let their generosity shine.

The dedicated Blue Crew volunteers spent over 1,500 hours supporting 13 nonprofit organizations throughout the region during the campaign, which kicked off September 18 and ran through the end of the month. Leading the associate campaign this year were Juan Lopez, vice president of investments and treasury services, and Peter Panageas, vice president of sales and client retention.


The Independence campaign is part of United Way’s 365 Days of Caring, a year-round effort to achieve a collective impact through corporate volunteerism. To learn more about #ibxgives2017, connect with Independence on Facebook and Twitter.
