The BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation presented Child & Family Tennessee (CFT) with a $10,000 check to benefit the children served by the nonprofit on Dec. 13.
”Child & Family Tennessee not only provides refuge for families in need, but it provides the tools for true change,” said Kathy Bingham, manager of BlueCross’ Tennessee Health Foundation. “It’s encouraging to see organizations such as this one provide a hand up, not just a hand out.”
CFT Interim President and CEO Joe Haas said he is thankful to have Blue Cross Blue Shield as a community partner.
“We would like to express our gratitude to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee for taking our children into consideration when planning their charitable contributions this year,” Haas said. “This donation will help us continue to provide the best care possible.”
