HF Financial Becomes First Sponsor of Charlotte Zoological Park's Think Recycle Partnership

HF Financial, a General Agency of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance
Company (MassMutual), has teamed up with the Charlotte Zoological
Park's Think Recycle program, becoming the first company to partner
with the organization on this fund-raising endeavor.

"Giving back to the community is important to our mission so we are
excited about supporting the Charlotte Zoological Park, which will
provide an amazing wildlife educational resource in our area," said
Timothy C. Flanagan, Jr., CLU, ChFC, CFP® and General Agent of HF
Financial. "We urge other businesses to join us in the Think Recycle
program that is not only helping raise funds for this important and
meaningful cause, but helps protect our environment as well."

The Think Recycle program gathers unwanted cell phones, inkjets, toner
cartridges and digital cameras from the community and its parent
organization, Greentec, then processes and recycles the products to
divert electronic waste from entering local landfills. To learn how to
participate in the program, contact the Charlotte Zoological Park at
