ATLANTA, Oct. 5, 2017 – State Farm is kicking off several employee builds during the month of October to celebrate 10 years of partnering with Habitat for Humanity.
More than 400 State Farm employees in the company’s hub locations of Dallas, Phoenix and Atlanta, will build alongside four families in need of affordable housing. The employee volunteers will contribute to the revitalization of a historic neighborhood and help complete a Habitat townhome community.
“We are so proud of the response we are seeing from our employees. They are eager to work alongside their neighbors to build and revitalize their homes and help them realize their dreams. This is what our Neighborhood of Good is about—turning caring into doing,” said Kellie Clapper, assistant vice president – Philanthropy/Human Resources at State Farm.
State Farm has been a supporter of Habitat for Humanity International’s youth initiatives since 2007. The company’s commitment has helped to mobilize more than 650,000 young volunteers to build homes and advocate for affordable housing.
“We are incredibly grateful for the generosity State Farm continues to extend to help connect young leaders to Habitat’s mission and to help families achieve the dream of home ownership,” said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, Habitat’s senior vice president of Development. “We are proud of our accomplishments together and look forward to celebrating this milestone year of partnership.”
