If you've ever wondered why is called "The Blue Envelope Health Fund," here's your answer.
According to the Blue Envelope Health Fair web-site this is how the organization became known as "The Blue Envelope Health Fund."
Continuing a philosophy which endures to this day, Blue Envelope has always stressed that donations should go where intended at the local level, to help with health care, and not for overhead expenses and when, in the early days of the organization, a low bid on envelopes, which turned out to be blue instead of white, was received, the Blue Envelope board started using those envelopes which soon became identified with the organization and eventually became the legal name.
Through the years, the Blue Envelope Heath Fund has supported many community health-related services including CPR training classes, YMCA programs, and cardiac rehabilitation along with direct financial assistance and has been instrumental in the establishment of the Life Flight air ambulance service in Wyoming, the Central Wyoming Counseling Center and the Central Wyoming Hospice program.
In 1973, Blue Envelope organized the Blue Envelope Health Fair which is annually attended by several thousand people and in 2001, to further promote wellness and disease prevention, a Wellness Division was established with the goal of developing a community wellness program in partnership with other community health organizations.
