Charlotte, NC - Patriots Path, a non-profit organization that supports Veterans, has received a $5,000 grant from the MassMutual Foundation as part of a national Community Service Award (CSA) program. Patriots Path is one of twenty-two organizations nationally to receive an award. The MassMutual Foundation made the grant as a tribute to the volunteer efforts of Tim Flanagan, CLU, ChFC, ChSNC, CFP, CFBS, President of MassMutual Carolinas in Charlotte, NC.

“We are stronger when we come together as a community, and our Community Service Awards program recognizes a group of MassMutual financial professionals who embody this spirit, working with members of their respective neighborhoods, towns and cities, helping nonprofits with which they are involved grow and thrive,” said Dennis Duquette, Head of MassMutual Community Responsibility and President of the MassMutual Foundation.   “We are proud of the time and energy Tim dedicates to better his community and delighted to support the great work MassMutual financial professionals do with organizations across the country.”

Patriots Path's mission is to work with Veterans and military personnel in career transition to define their career goals, map out job search strategies, identify opportunities, create their personal marketing approach and connect with the community to peers, mentors and coaches for continued networking and support.

Tim has been with MassMutual since 1989 and took over as President of MassMutual Carolinas in 2004. He has been committed to Patriots Path since 2015 and has dedicated countless hours of time and talent to help the organization grow and flourish.
