Supporting Recovery Efforts for Fire and Shooting Victims

By Andy Ortiz
Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Organization Development

Colleagues,

Over the last few weeks, we have been shaken by news of immense loss and suffering of those close to home and across the country. As an organization dedicated to healing, we are profoundly saddened by the shootings in Pittsburgh and Thousand Oaks, and the wildfires in Southern and Northern California.

Cedars-Sinai stands ready to help.

We have made significant contributions to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation and to two separate funds that will directly aid shooting victims from the Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks and the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.

And now, we are matching donations dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, to fire relief efforts through the American Red Cross. Employees can contribute online through a dedicated Cedars-Sinai webpage or by dropping off checks at the lockbox in the Community Relations Office, Suite 2416, until Nov. 30. Checks should be made out to “American Red Cross” noting “California Fire Relief” in the memo line.

Proceeds will be directed to areas of greatest need.

Thank you for your generosity during these moments of great need. Your contributions are a demonstration of our unwavering commitment to compassion and healing.
