As a medium-sized, veteran and family-owned medical staffing agency, RTG Medical knows the importance of showing support for your neighbors. That is why in 2017, RTG Medical made a concerted effort toward building a community partnership program with organizations that stay true to the values of our company and employees. Continuing in 2018, RTG Medical is proudly partnering with organizations that focus on three specific areas: our veterans, adoptable animals, and supporting the youth within our community.
RTG Medical employees celebrated their 2nd annual “Day of Thanks” last Wednesday at the Alamo Drafthouse alongside the following community partners. The purpose of RTG’s Day of Thanks is to allow our employees to meet and engage with our community partners face-to-face, as well as learn exactly what their donations will go toward in 2018. RTG employees and community partners were treated to a pre-Thanksgiving turkey lunch with all of the fixings and a funny holiday movie was shown post presentations.

Special Olympics Team Nebraska and Fremont team
Coming up in 2018, RTG Medical will be Special Olympics Nebraska’s “Team Nebraska’s” first corporate sponsor as they plan to send nearly 40 athletes to Seattle in July for the National Games.
RTG Medical will continue to be Special Olympics Fremont’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 the humane societies will include donations of supplies needed for the facilities and animals.
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. Stay tuned for updates on how RTG is making a difference in the Omaha and Fremont communities!
