OnTrac Supports 8th Annual Million Can Crusade

Posted on Dec 4, 2015 11:35:12 AM

OnTrac joined KNIX Radio and St. Vincent de Paul in their fight against hunger. 2015 marks the fifth year that OnTrac has supported the Million Can Crusade by organizing a canned food drive at the OnTrac corporate office during the month of November.  In addition, OnTrac donated $1,500 to the cause at the KNIX Kickoff party on November 2, 2015. The donation is equivalent to 15,000 cans and helps bridge the gap to collect a total of one million cans. The OnTrac corporate office set a goal to collect 3,000 cans of food and surpassed the goal by 2,017, for a total of over 5,000 cans. In total with the monetary donation, OnTrac donated 20,017 cans to Million Can Crusade this year.

KNIX Radio has hosted the million can crusade during the month of November since 2008. #hungersucks is the theme of the campaign in their eighth year. Ben and Matt In The Morning of KNIX Radio sold apparel with the slogan and one hundred percent of the proceeds went towards their goal to collect one million cans. In addition, tickets were sold to a special concert at Whiskey Row in Scottsdale featuring David Nail on Wednesday, November 25, 2015. Five dollars of each ticket sold went towards the goal as well.

Morning show co-host Matt McAllister said, “During this time of the year, I feel so fortunate to help out in this way. It’s such a blessing to be able to do this for a living.”

“It’s a community effort,” said Ben Campbell, morning show co-host. “Every year it’s gotten a little bit bigger. I never imagined that the first year we’d hit the goal of one million cans or that this year we’d be over two million cans.”

Additional to the canned food drive at OnTrac, there were multiple locations throughout the valley during the month where KNIX Radio collected cans from the community. In total, the Million Can Crusade collected 2,653,348 cans and will benefit more than 80 parish-based food pantries in the community to help feed hungry families this holiday season.

OnTrac Delivering Hope to Local Schools

Posted on Oct 9, 2015 9:54:24 AM

OnTrac Delivering Hope to Local SchoolsDuring the month of September, OnTrac delivered backpacks and school supplies to 1,000 elementary, middle and high school students within the Western Region. Thirty-eight school districts and charities were touched by OnTrac Delivering Hope. OnTrac supplied 1,000 backpacks and distributed them to OnTrac operational facilities in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah and Washington. School districts nearest to all of the facilities were chosen to participate. At each facility OnTrac employees donated and filled each backpack with supplies specific to students in kindergarten to 12th grade.

OnTrac is onboard with delivering hope to today’s youth and couldn’t be more excited to help these students succeed in the 2015-2016 school year and beyond. According to the City of Chandler’s website, “Hundreds of children go back to school each year without any school supplies [and] there are more than 8,000 students in the Chandler Unified School District [alone] who attend Title 1 schools.” City of Chandler Community Resources and Diversity Manager Leah Powell says, “It’s local businesses, like OnTrac, whose support helps to bring success to the families and communities that we serve.”

At OnTrac, it’s an important company-wide initiative to support the communities that we live and grow in. “We have a responsibility to give back to local communities and we feel very fortunate to be able to help those in need,” said Dennis Crosby, Commerce General Manager. “Education is everything and if we’re not involved with today’s youth, then we fail as a leader in the community.”

Albuquerque School District
Bakersfield City School District
Campbell Union School District

OnTrac_Chicago Title MAW

At OnTrac, we take pride in creating lasting relationships with our customers. During the month of August, we were fortunate to participate in two of our customer’s events. Not only are we contributing to a great cause, but we have fun while we do it.

OnTrac_Chicago Title MAW

2015 marks the 23rd year that Chicago Title Insurance Company hosts an annual softball tournament in Sunnyvale to raise awareness and funding for Make-A-Wish, Greater Bay Area, and the seventh year that OnTrac has participated. The tournament was held over three days in early August. There were 21 teams that went head to head for the 2015 winning title. Chicago Title Vice President of Operations Valeri Huxley shares, “To date, we have raised over $850,000 for Make-A-Wish, Greater Bay Area and we have such a great time doing it! This year our goal was to raise $50,000.” Congratulations Chicago Title on creating an event that not only supports a great cause, but allows each supporter to have fun while participating!

OnTrac_Oakmont 2015 Football Cleanup

The second event that OnTrac was a part of this month was the 2015 Football Stadium Cleanup at Oakmont High School of Roseville, California. We were able to help keep the students and parents hydrated, while they cleaned up the football stadiums during their Saturday. We wish the Oakmont Vikings a great school year and 2015 football season!
