At the recent memorial service for NST’s co-founder, Dave Nuffer, Mayor Jerry Sanders said he thought no one cared about San Diego more than Dave Nuffer. It’s true – Dave loved America’s Finest City (and its neighboring cities south of the border) and was happy to provide communications counsel to anyone helping to make it a better place to live, work and play.
Following in Dave’s footsteps, we at Nuffer, Smith, Tucker believe it’s important to give back – it not only helps those in need and sets an example for other organizations, but it also makes us a better team. On June 23, 2011, NST was honored at the inaugural Heilbron Awards, presented by San Diego Rotary Club 33 and the San Diego Business Journal to companies that exhibit high ethical standards, a commitment to community service and a willingness to utilize its professional skill sets to help others in the community. We were among a group of outstanding San Diego organizations recognized and are very grateful to be included in such great company.
Whether you’re a plumber or a PR practitioner, we all have something of value we can use to help those in need. NST’s team members serve on a variety of non-profit boards, regularly volunteer for local non-profit organizations and provide pro-bono counsel to clients, to name a few things. What type of things do you or your professional team do to “pay it forward” and make your community a better place?
