Sutter Health Donates $255,000 to Help the Hungry This Holiday Season
Date:11/9/2009

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Sutter Health, a family of doctors, not-for-profit hospitals and other health care service providers, is donating $255,000 to food banks across Northern California. A variety of local food banks will share the quarter-million-dollar donation to help put much-needed meals on the tables of thousands of families across the north state.

Sutter Health has a long history of partnering with and supporting charitable programs and services. This donation - made on behalf of the employees around the Sutter network - further expands this commitment. As budgets are stretched thin during these difficult economic times, donations such as Sutter Health's help community food banks extend their significant purchasing power. For instance, at one area food bank, a $1 donation translates into $7 worth of distributed food.

Meeting community health care needs is the cornerstone of Sutter Health's not-for-profit mission. Its care and services for the poor and underserved, and benefits for the broader community, totaled $599 million in 2008.
