Sentinel Benefits & Financial Group

Corporate Philanthropy Award – Advisory Firms

A cornerstone of Sentinel’s mission is “We Care About How We Can Help,” which extends beyond financial advice and is a central part of the company’s culture of giving back. Based in Wakefield, Mass., Sentinel runs numerous volunteer programs each year. In 2016, the company added a new spin to its food drive for a local food pantry – competition. Employees formed teams and a point system was assigned to the items they collected. Employees cleared the shelves at local supermarkets to collect over 2,000 pounds of food, which was roughly 16 pounds of food per employee.
