Sutter Health Honors Military, Families and Veterans through Operation Care Package
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – As part of a broader commitment to support military personnel, their families and veterans, Sutter Health teamed up with the Red Cross Gold Country Region to donate supplies to military members, at home and abroad. This year marks the fifth time the not-for-profit health network participated in Operation Care Package. Last Friday, Sutter Health employees delivered three moving-truck-loads of donated supplies to the official Operation Care Package donation site, the Roseville Automall.
Sutter’s Ongoing Commitment to Veterans
Sutter Health greatly values the contributions military veterans provide—to the United States as well as to its network. Sutter launched a Military and Veterans Inclusion Resource Group to support members of the military, veterans and their friends and family. Sutter Health collaborates with the Employment Development Department to promote jobs for military members seeking employment. Additionally, the health care organization’s military recruitment efforts include participation in military career fairs and posting to online military job boards. Sutter Health also teamed up with Veteran Jobs Mission, a national organization committed to employing and mentoring veterans.
Sutter Health employs more than 1,460 veterans and reservists.
