RTG has partnered with this nonprofit to ensure at least 500 wreaths are laid on a veteran’s grave. Our team volunteers at the Memorial Cemetery in Fremont and the Omaha National Cemetery. Two RTG employees and veterans of U.S. military, Scott Steffensmeier (Navy) and Zach Crosby (Marines), will participate in Omaha on Saturday, December 15th.
The Fremont Family YMCA and RTG Medical launched SwimMates in January. The program teaches swimming lessons to first graders in the Fremont area. More than 450 first graders have graduated from the program from seven Fremont area elementary schools. Here’s an inside look at one of the swim lessons!
Special Olympics: Nebraska and Fremont teams
RTG Medical has become the first corporate sponsor for Nebraska’s Special Olympics Team. Nearly 70 athletes and coaches traveled to Seattle for the National Games. Five athletes at that competition were from the Special Olympics Fremont Team. RTG’s sponsorship helped cover travel costs, uniforms, and incidentals for all athletes. Fremont athlete Wyatt Spalding spoke on behalf of both the Special Olympics Nebraska and Fremont teams on how the organization helped make an impact on his life.
Nebraska & Dodge County Humane Society
Tens of thousands of animals have come through our local humane society’s doors. RTG partners with both the Nebraska and Dodge County Humane Society. 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.
Folds of Honor
RTG Medical’s newest community partner, Folds of Honor, provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of fallen and disabled service-members. RTG is driven to support their mission: “Honor Their Sacrifice. Educate Their Legacy.” In 2019, RTG employees will provide more than $14,000 in scholarships.
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 throughout 2019 on how RTG is making a difference in the Omaha and Fremont communities!
