Teams from National Life Group’s Sentinel Investments asset management company raised money and collected food for the Vermont Foodbank while challenging other companies to do the same.

Sentinel employees split up into teams to create “Canstruction” structures made from canned goods that will be donated to the Foodbank. Canstruction is a charity that has inspired creation of elaborate structures made of canned goods all over the world that are then donated to hunger relief.

This is the second year that Sentinel employees have participated. This year, they collected more than 3,000 canned goods and an additional $1,000 for the Vermont Foodbank.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to have fun while doing good for the community,” said Mehran Assadi, president and CEO of National Life Group. “Our company is committed to sustainability and the values of Do good. Be good. Make good.”

Those corporate values were incorporated into each of the sculptures created by Sentinel employees. The winning entry was the shape of a globe, built on National Life Group’s Do Good values. The organizers offered the platform and schematic drawings that they created to the Foodbank or any company in the region to use if they want to do their own Canstruction structures.

Another of the other sculptures featured an enormous milk carton, and another was a huge piece of pumpkin pie.
