#WyoStrong: With new changes and unexpected challenges, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming unites with our Wyoming neighbors to do our part

#WyoStrong stories, brought to you by Wyoming Community Bank, highlight Wyoming perseverance, ingenuity, creativity and resilience.

For some, doing our part means staying at home, and for others—medical personnel and grocery store workers alike, it means showing up to work every day.

Our small state thrives when all of us come together to help others in their homes and communities and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming (BCBSWY) wants to share an appreciation for the acts of caring we’re witnessing across the state.

In addition, we want to show the state we remain as committed as ever to do our part to help our neighbors.

By teaming up with the Wyoming Hunger Initiative, we are helping to make sure Wyoming families don’t go hungry during these uncertain times. Started by First Lady Jennie Gordon, the goal of the Wyoming Hunger Initiative is to end childhood hunger in Wyoming. BCBSWY’s gift of $100,000 will support local anti-hunger programs and help build programs, like Food from the Field, that will have a lasting impact on solving food insecurity in Wyoming communities.

“Food scarcity is near and dear to our hearts because it’s hard to stay healthy if you’re hungry. Now, with so many of our Wyoming neighbors struggling to make ends meet, this is one more way we can help” said Diane Gore, president, and CEO of BCBSWY.

“We have launched #WyomingTogether as a way to recognize the many ways people have come together to offer a neighborly hand to support each other, local businesses, health care providers, and the people who keep our state running”, Gore said. “BCBSWY is committed to doing what we can, and we’re encouraged by what we see others doing.”

BCBSWY invites you to join us as we recognize acts of #WyomingTogether and share gratitude toward those who showed up for work every day during this pandemic to keep our communities safe and healthy.
