Doing Good in the Neighborhood North Carolina Central University’s Department of Athletics, the Durham Bulls and Blue Cross

and Blue Shield of North Carolina teamed up in September and October for a six-week outreach

program to deliver 2,166 lunches to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Durham and Orange Counties. This collaboration helped the Boys & Girls Clubs save up to three hours daily on meal preparation time and provided the kids with a warm, healthy meal. “We are proud to team up with these partners to make a difference in the Durham community,” says Cheryl Parquet, director of community engagement and marketing activation at Blue Cross NC. “The Boys & Girls Clubs are essential for many Durham families, and it’s essential that we support them during this time.”
