We host open houses and educational tours. We also partner with local sports leagues by hosting tailgates. Our employees donate non-perishable food and cash for area food banks. Each year NDTC gives 10 - $750 scholarships to graduating seniors to further their education. Money spent with NDTC is invested back into local area schools, community projects, and local events. We are also taking an active part in going green, by reducing, reusing, and recycling.
