About the photo

Sterling Insurance Group’s philanthropy committee – the Sterling Cares Committee – rounded up employees to volunteer last month at Gleaners Community Food Bank, something the agency does multiple times a year. Sterling Insurance Group employees rolled up their sleeves and ended up having the best time volunteering!
Working with Gleaners, Sterling’s representatives assisted in putting truckloads of donated vegetable puree to good use by turning it into a delicious veggie sauce. Additionally, Sterling’s Summer Food Drive brought in hundreds of pounds of goods for Gleaners to distribute to those across Southeast Michigan in need of sufficient and nutritious food and related resources.

A culture of giving back

Before the Food Drive and volunteer day, Sterling Insurance Group teamed up with Insurance carriers across the board and donated over $7,000 to Upper Peninsula neighbors to assist with recovery efforts after devastating floods hit the area. Read more about this contribution on the Sterling Insurance Group blog.
This spring, Sterling Insurance Group sent multiple boxes of food, books, magazines, games and other items to an employee’s son’s platoon, stationed in Afghanistan.

Currently, Sterling employees are hosting their Annual School Supplies Drive. Want to help gather school supplies to donate to schools and families in-need before the school year starts? Please join our efforts and bring in supplies to our Sterling Heights office!

Looking ahead, Sterling plans to assist underprivileged children around Christmas time, as well as donate to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
