Thanks to the generous spirit of employees, Sutter Health’s Holiday Adopt-a-Family program is making the difference in the lives of families across the region. Let’s count all the ways in 2019!

250+ families will receive gifts this year, bringing the total to more than 2,500 Sacramento area and Central Valley families adopted in the past decade.

• Sutter Health collaborated with 10 not-for-profit community agencies that identified families in need:
o the Child Abuse Prevention Council in Sacramento County
o the Fighting Back Partnership in Solano County
o Hands of Hope in Yuba and Sutter counties
o Haven Women’s Center of Stanislaus
o KidsFirst and Lincoln Lighthouse in Placer County
o Nexus Youth and Family Services in Amador County
o Women’s Center Youth and Family Services in San Joaquin County
o the Valley Crisis Center in Merced County
o Yolo County Children’s Alliance

• At 12 drop-off locations across the Sutter Health network, employees donated new gifts that range from clothes and shoes to toys and books—based on lists put together by the families.

Countless smiles from those involved, spreading holiday joy and goodwill to all!

• As a not-for-profit organization, Sutter Health believes in giving back. Sutter Health’s total community benefit investment in 2018 was $734 million. These funds supported traditional charity care, unreimbursed Medi-Cal costs, health education as well as community clinics.
