Like a Good Neighbor, State Farm Gives Back
Naples, FL (September 9, 2020) — State Farm has awarded Habitat for Humanity of Collier County a grant of $5,000 to go towards the construction of an affordable home for a Collier County family in need.
State Farm supports the communities they serve through Good Neighbor Citizenship company grants and the State Farm Companies Foundation. The insurance provider has made a commitment to improving and maintaining the vitality of our communities through their investment in organizations which support affordable housing, job training, neighborhood revitalization and more. As a top provider of affordable homes in Collier County, the local Habitat affiliate was chosen as the beneficiary of one of State Farm’s grants.
“Partnerships like this one continue to be such an important part of the work that we do in this community,” said Habitat Collier CEO Rev. Lisa Lefkow. “When companies like State Farm make giving back a priority, the whole community benefits.”
Collier County’s affordable housing shortage has been a constant struggle for the area’s workforce for years, and Habitat for Humanity of Collier County is one of the only resources available to serve that need. The nonprofit’s program is highly competitive with about 20 families inquiring for each home they are able to fund and build.
The State Farm grant will support a portion of the construction costs of a new home for a family in the neighborhood of Vincent’s Acres, Habitat Collier’s newest subdivision in Naples.
