Here at BCBSNC, we support a wide range of community projects, but perhaps one of the most enjoyable of all are the KaBOOM! playground builds. This summer, 100 employees joined other volunteers from the Asheville area to build a playground at Oakley Elementary School that will serve as an inclusive gathering spot for the whole community.

As Oakley 4th grader Sare Koruk said at the start of the construction, “EVERYBODY deserves to play!”

Missed the event? Not to worry. You can catch the whole thing in action right here:
