Images from our Blessings in a Backpack employee volunteer event

A big event that packed big rewards

On January 15, the Healthier Kids For Our FutureSM program kicked off in the U.S. Cigna partnered with Blessings in a Backpack, a non-profit organization that provides food on the weekends for elementary school children. More than 2,000 employees gathered to fill 16,500 backpacks with non-perishable food items for kids in their communities. This effort represented the biggest single-day corporate volunteer effort in the history of Blessings in a Backpack.
