PALM HARBOR – Nationwide Title Clearing, a post-closing services provider for the residential mortgage industry, has long incorporated corporate social responsibility into its business model with extensive environmental health programs such as paperless payroll and recycling programs.
As an extended branch of its community-focused business practices, the Palm Harbor company recently amassed 200 pounds of donations for U.S. troops stationed overseas in conjunction with the United Service Organization Inc.
Approximately 50 NTC employees, along with three employees from British Airways and the USO Tampa Bay Inc., participated in a donation drive for the troops by organizing and contributing items such as personal hygiene items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, body wash and moisturizer, razors and sun screen, books and magazines, playing cards, DVD movies and nonperishable snacks and canned foods.
“NTC is lucky to have employees who take advantage of every opportunity to give back,” said Myron Finley in a press release. Finley is chief legal officer at NTC. “Supplying much needed assistance to our troops is the least we can do, and we are looking into making this an annual donation drive. Being in the armed forces is a huge sacrifice, and sending a piece of home to those who are deployed is a simple way of thanking them for their service.”
For those interested in making donations, visit the USO Lounge at Tampa International Airport, which is located on the second floor of the main terminal near the British Airways ticket counter.
Based in Palm Harbor and founded in 1991, Nationwide Title Clearing is a privately owned service provider.
