Our Promise events were in full swing these past few weeks with two being held in Rancho Cordova and Elk Grove.

On October 19, a CDCR office in Rancho Cordova featured speakers, nonprofit organizations, door prizes and a taco food truck.

Some of those attending included CDCR Undersecretary of Administration Jennifer Barretto, Director Amy Miller with the Division of Correctional Policy Research and Internal Oversight, while San Quentin Lt. Sam Robinson emceed the event.

California Correctional Health Care Services (CCHCS) held an Our Promise event Nov. 1 at the Elk Grove offices. Receiver Clark Kelso and Undersecretary of Health Care Services Diana Toche were in attendance. Again, there were featured speakers, nonprofits, door prizes and a food truck.

There have been many Our Promise events at institutions, headquarters and offices across the state.

The CDCR and CCHCS Our Promise Charitable Campaign runs through Nov. 12. Check out Cal Employee Connect, a secure resource for state workers to access their paycheck information, leave balances, and more. It’s also where you can find the Our Promise portal to make a one-time or ongoing donation.
