Big Bend Habitat for Humanity, Inc. and Florida State University Habitat Campus Chapter are one of 15 groups selected to receive a grant from State Farm®. Big Bend Habitat and Florida State University Habitat Campus Chapter have been awarded $10,000 and must raise a matching amount.
“We are grateful to have been selected as one of the matching grant recipients,” said chapter president Jack Bart. “The grant will help us to construct a house with a family in our community.”
Florida State University Habitat Chapter has partnered with Big Bend Habitat for Humanity since 1990 and will use the funds to build a single-family home.
“We are proud to support young leaders in advancing Habitat’s mission in communities across the country,” said Ed Woods, Director, Corporate Responsibility at State Farm. “At State Farm, we make it our business to be a good neighbor and are committed to building safer, stronger and better educated communities.”
Scheduled fundraising activities include grant writing, concessions, and some outreach through our social media platforms. Please follow us on facebook for announcements about upcoming events, https://m.facebook.com/HabitatFsu.
Habitat has several programs to engage youth ages 16 to 25. In addition to State Farm supporting Habitat for Humanity’s youth programs since 2007, many local Habitat organizations also receive ongoing support.
