As a medium sized, veteran and family owned medical staffing agency, RTG Medical knows the importance of showing support for your neighbor. That is why in 2016, RTG made a concerted effort toward building a community partnership program with partnerships that stay true to the values of our company and to what’s important to our employees. So, in 2017, RTG is proudly partnering with organizations that focus on three specific areas: veterans, adoptable animals and the youth within our community.
We’re excited to officially introduce RTG Medical’s 2017 Community Partners! Learn how and why RTG is partnering Wreaths Across America, the Fremont Family YMCA, Special Olympics Nebraska and Fremont teams, the Nebraska Humane Society and Dodge County Humane Society.
Wreaths Across America
Our partnership with Wreaths Across America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to remembering and honoring veterans, ensured a wreath was laid this holiday season on a veteran’s grave at Memorial Cemetery in Fremont. One of our incredible employees even braved 15 below zero-degree weather to help lay the wreaths down on the special grave sites. This act shows how important this causes is to our company and community.
Fremont Family YMCA
For the first time in the Fremont Family YMCA’s history, they will be able to provide swim lessons to first graders in select Fremont area schools free of charge to the students and their families via the Fremont Family YMCA and RTG Medical’s SwimMates program. As a participant in the SwimMates program, students will have professional instructors in and out of the water and transportation to the facility and school. Upon completion of the program, each swimmer will receive an RTG branded swim towel that is theirs to keep!
Special Olympics Nebraska and Fremont team
The Special Olympics Nebraska is an organization that pulled on the heartstrings of most, if not all, of our employees’ hearts. Our partnership with the Special Olympics Nebraska allows us to get more involved with the organization by staffing a local tournament which will allow their athletes compete more often prior to their annual Fall Games.
Along with providing Special Olympic athletes more opportunities to play, RTG is very excited to announce that we’ll be the Special Olympics Fremont, Nebraska team’s official apparel provider. With around 10 sports and nearly 100 athletes, each athlete will have a unique look to their jerseys. RTG’s partnership with the Fremont organization will allow them to use fundraised money on other necessary items, such as new equipment, travel, facility rentals, etc.
Nebraska Humane Society and Dodge County Humane Society
More than 25,000 animals come through the Nebraska Humane Society in Omaha, Nebraska each year. This incredible organization provides each animal with dental exams, necessary surgeries and any needed medication in hopes the animals get a second chance and become adopted. RTG’s partnership with NHS included donations of two large, washable dog or cat houses filled with medical supplies along with a donation check from RTG employees.
In Fremont, the Dodge County Humane Society helps thousands of stray animals from the Fremont and surrounding area throughout the year. RTG employees donated loads of food, treats and toys to the organization over the holiday along with a large donation check fundraised by RTG employees.
All of these organizations truly care about the communities they serve and RTG Medical is proud to play a part in the difference these nonprofits make on a daily basis.
