At Anthem we care for our community including the health and well-being and caring environment for our own associates. Caring is one of our core values that Anthem is built on!
Each year, more than 2,000 children enter Connecticut’s shelter system, and we want to do something to provide a little bit of comfort to children and shelters and to end homelessness for families. For every $25 you donate to the be homeful project, CCEH’s partners, the CT REALTORS® Foundation and Citizens Bank, will gift a Paddington™ plush bear, book, or blankie to a child in shelter in your honor. Funds raised provide emergency assistance to help children in CT stay in the comfort of home.
We are donating Paddingtons in honor of the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness's "spokesbear", who is reminding children that there are people like us who care. You can even donate a bear or book in honor of a colleague or loved one this holiday season and receive a special gift tag to share as a holiday gift. We hope you will help. We are setting our goal at $1,000---40 bears or books---because that is enough to help a family remain in their home. Hopefully we can help more than one family this holiday season so please be generous! You can learn more about the be homeful project by visiting www.behomeful.org/give. Thank you for being homeful for the holidays!
