Sentry employees recently participated in a month-long donation drive at the Orlando/Longwood office. Proceeds benefited The Sharing Center, a non-profit charity organization that donates the items collected to needy families and homeless members of the community.
Close to 2,000 items were donated in total by Sentry employees. This drive occurs several times a year, and employees have donated over 10,000 items since the program was first introduced in 2014.
The drive invites employees to donate food, hygiene products, clothing, pet food, and school supplies that are then sorted into the distribution center and selected based on the needs of the recipient.
A majority of the donated food and clothing go towards the Sharing Center’s homeless rehabilitation program and support for medical needs. The program offers business clothes in good condition, free showers and haircuts in order for recipients to prepare for job interviews.
“Giving SMILES, (Sentry Management’s Branded Philanthropic Program) is such an important and amalgamated aspect of our Core Value to embrace the honor to serve our community. There is no greater honor than to be part of a community management company who lends a helping hand when needed to our neighbors,” Angel Helmes, Senior Manager of Financial Services and SMILES Coordinator said.
