VIRGINIA BEACH, Va., Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --   Amerigroup, a wholly owned subsidiary of WellPoint, Inc., today announced it was recognized by PR News as the 2013 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Award winner in the Volunteer Program category.

The Amerigroup Community Volunteers program has as a core mission to establish a best-in-class standard to help those in need, supporting and enhancing our local communities and providing meaningful volunteer opportunities for employees.

"Social responsibility and community engagement are not just part of our business — they are our business," said John E. Littel, chairman of the Amerigroup Foundation. "We are honored to receive this award in recognition of our community volunteer program and the many employees who give of their time and expertise to assist organizations nationwide."  

Amerigroup issues an annual community engagement survey to all employees to build awareness of the volunteer programs and benefits available through the Amerigroup Foundation.

"With strategic planning and objective measurement, we are able to continuously improve and align the Amerigroup Community Volunteers program with the needs of our associates and their communities," said Melissa Reese, director of Community Relations. "In 2012, our employees donated more than 25,000 hours of service to nearly 1,000 different organizations across the United States, and we look forward to growing these numbers and continuing to make a difference in the communities we serve."
