Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
On April 12, 2013, Nationwide Title Clearing, Inc. (NTC) employees attended the Relay For Life of Palm Harbor event for the fourth consecutive year, held to benefit the American Cancer Society. Employees of NTC, the nation’s leading post-closing services provider for the residential mortgage industry, raised $10,183 this year, putting them in third place for overall team fundraising. NTC officials say the company experiences side benefits from employees who take part in social responsibility endeavors within the community; their efforts and hard work help strengthen their business as well.
Nearly three quarters (68%) of employed U.S. adults wished their own company or employer engaged in more social responsibility initiatives, according to the fourth annual Gibbs & Soell Sense & Sustainability Study. (1) Nationwide Title Clearing has over 350 local employees employed at their office in Palm Harbor. For several years, NTC employees have been participating in charity events such as Toys for Tots® toy drives for the holidays, regular blood drives, clothing drives, community events and more.
This year, NTC was recognized as a “Jade Team Fundraising Club Level,” a special designation for teams that raised over $10,000. NTC’s Vice President of Human Resources, Erika Lance, was recognized as an “Emerald Individual Fundraiser” for raising over $2,500 for the event. Lance was the number one fundraiser on the NTC team.
This is NTC’s fourth consecutive year of participation in this event, bringing the lifetime collective fundraising total to $43,048.35 in donations raised for the American Cancer Society.
NTC employees initiated their own company fundraising events for RFL, including hot dog lunches, vacation day raffles, Valentine’s Day basket raffles, bake sales, and flower grams.
“NTC has the manpower to really make an impact in our community,” stated John Hillman, CEO of Nationwide Title Clearing. “Our employees voluntarily contribute to this cause every year and each year I have seen their sense of satisfaction grow. Working together as a team for a good cause outside the company, makes working here more than just a job and more like part of a family. I am very proud of their dedication, both inside and outside our company.”
NTC would also like to acknowledge its team sponsors for their support and donations: Aerotek, Akerman Senterfitt; Alley, Rehbaum & Capes Insurance; Apex Office Products & Furniture; Barker, Rodems & Cook, P.A.; BRG Insurance; Court Express, LLC; Thompson, Sizemore, Gonzalez & Hearing, P.A.; and US Water Services.

About Relay For Life:
Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and is driven by volunteers. Relay For Life began in 1985 when colorectal surgeon Dr. Gordon Klatt decided to raise money for the American Cancer Society in honor of his patients by walking around a track in a 24-hour period. Today, Relay For Life events are held in more than 5,000 communities spanning 21 countries and have raised an estimated over $3 billion. All proceeds go to funding cancer research with the aims of eradicating the disease. In addition to fundraising, the event also raises awareness of the disease and furthers the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives by helping people stay well, helping them get well, and by finding cures and fighting back.
