About Independence Blue Cross

Blue Crew Volunteer program

At Independence Blue Cross (Independence), we are passionate about our mission to enhance the health and well-being of the people and communities we serve. Since 2001, our volunteer program, The Blue Crew, has been a hallmark of this commitment and a testament to all that we can accomplish together.

As Blue Crew volunteers, associates at Independence, their families, and retirees support a diverse range of community service projects in partnership with nearly 100 nonprofit organizations throughout our region.


Giving back in ways big and small

Independence associates are active in the community year-round. No matter what the need is or the size of the project or event, Blue Crew volunteers are always ready to share their time and talents — from providing weekly literacy coaching to local elementary school students to supporting programs that improve health and well-being and food insecurity, to rallying participants at some of the largest fundraising events in the greater Philadelphia region.

Our Blue Crew is emblematic of the power of corporate citizenship at Independence, allowing our volunteers take the networking, teambuilding, and leadership skills they develop and use them to make Independence and our region a better place to work, live, and play.
