Though we may have said goodbye to 2014, the exciting efforts our team members contributed to within our communities last year are far from over (and they say all good things come to an end, psh)! In 2014, team members set the bar high with a goal to complete 12,000 volunteer hours. Not only did we reach our goal, we crushed it by almost 52 percent! Let’s look back at some of the remarkable ways Title Source team members have made a difference in the communities across the nation throughout 2014.
In the beginning of June, 70 team members, family and friends participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Detroit. Our very own Title Source team was presented the “Rookie of the Year” award. This award is presented by the Detroit Tigers Wives Association, and is given to the largest new team to register for the event. To read a full recap of the event, click here.
On June 14th, over 50 team members in Pennsylvania joined the two-mile-long Walk Now for Autism Speaks event that started and finished at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. Not only did they raise an amazing $4,000, but they also helped spread awareness about this increasingly common disorder.
At the end of September, 34 team members in Texas volunteered at the Serve Denton Charity Golf Classic. This event raises money for numerous nonprofits in the Denton community to provide food, clothing, shelter and medical care to those who are in desperate need.
In California, 10 team members joined 16,600 other participants in the Children’s Hospital of Orange County Walk in the Park on October 12th. This three-mile walk, which takes place throughout the Disneyland Resort, raises funds for a variety of patient and family programs at the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Together our Title Source team members raised over $1,000!
During the holiday giving season team members from all offices and remote locations rallied together to support a variety of charity drives. Their generosity resulted in an amazing show of compassion and support for charitable organizations in need. Altogether, Title Source donated over 1,300 toys to Toys for Tots; 1,500 pieces of clothing to Coalition of Temporary Shelter (COTS), Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul; and a whopping $14,000 to the American Red Cross.
To finish up the year, our very own CEO Jeff Eisenshtadt dressed up as the friendly snowman Olaf from the Disney animated film “Frozen” to support the Salvation Army’s Metal in the Kettle Campaign. Braving the cold and windy weather on a mid-December afternoon, Title Source and Quicken Loans leaders donned costumes and stood next to their red kettles while ringing bells to collect donations. Altogether, over $75,000 was raised to help those in need in the surrounding community.
We could not be any more ecstatic about all of time, dedication, contributions and smiles that our team members have brought to their communities in 2014. The fun’s not over though! Our new goal for 2015 is to reach 18,000 community involvement hours.
We can’t wait to see all the great ways our team members are donating their time and supporting the communities where we work, live, and play in 2015!
