On December 15, 2012 Nationwide Title Clearing Inc. (NTC), offered their time and support to the 24th Annual Say No to Drugs Holiday Classic 5K/10K held in Tampa Bay at Coachman Park. NTC had 20 employees volunteer at the race to promote healthy and drug-free living. NTC representatives assisted with advance and onsite registration, race chip distribution and manning water stations throughout the course.
As a local Palm Harbor employer, NTC strives to make the community a prosperous place to do business, as well as a safe and enjoyable place to live. When issues arise that can affect deter from that, employees take action.
The drug epidemic is a local problem. According to the Tampa Bay Times, the abuse of prescription pills throughout Florida (particularly in the Tampa Bay area) is the area’s greatest law enforcement crisis. NTC senior executives chose to support organizations helping to alleviate the problem in their company community efforts. NTC shares the same mission of the ‘Say No To Drugs’ program, which promotes healthy and drug-free living. The ‘Say No To Drugs Holiday Classic’ uses sports to help deliver the messages to kids and adults alike.
NTC’s community efforts have been increasing as they have been hiring more employees, adding approximately 150 employees in 2012. In addition to performing land records research, reporting services and document processing for the residential mortgage servicing industry, employees sign up to volunteer at various charity events around the Tampa Bay area including food, clothing and blood drives.
“We consistently participate in community events that support worthy causes,” commented John Hillman, CEO of NTC. “I have seen many [NTC] employees participate in charity functions this year; giving back is an important part of our culture.”
As NTC is a drug-free workplace, company officials say they plan to support the Say No To Drugs Holiday Classic again in 2013.
