Secretary, Receiver kick off campaign with video message

After two years of an online campaign, this year CDCR and CCHCS are excited to kick off the 2022 Our Promise campaign back in-person. This year’s CDCR and CCHCS campaign begins October 10 and runs through November 11, and includes a series of events beginning October 12 at CDCR Headquarters.

“Our wonderful employees support a variety of causes, from organizations working to cure deadly diseases to animal rescues to community groups that help people in need,” shared CDCR Secretary Kathleen Allison. “No matter the cause, I am always so humbled and impressed with your spirit of service.”

Through the statewide campaign Our Promise: California State Employees Giving Back at Work, state workers can volunteer to make a one-time or ongoing donation via payroll deduction to a nonprofit of their choice.

“CDCR and CCHCS consistently rank among the top Our Promise donors,” said Clark Kelso, Receiver, CCHCS. “We want to recognize every CDCR and CCHCS employee for your generosity.”

Our Promise 2022 events scheduled

The campaign events begin Wednesday, October 12, at CDCR Headquarters, 1515 S. St., Sacramento. Attendees will enjoy entertainment, door prizes, food trucks, guest speakers and the opportunity to learn from various nonprofit organizations about the important work they do. The event takes place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Our Promise hits the road after that, with an event from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, October 19, at 1920 Birkmont Drive, Rancho Cordova. Next, check out the fun from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, November 1, at 8280 Longleaf Drive, Elk Grove.
