State Farm Founder’s Day events aids Habitats for Humanity


State Farm recently celebrated its 102nd anniversary with a week full of Founder’s Day activities. The insurance company began on June 7, 1922 in Bloomington, Illinois.

More than 50 State Farm employees, agents and agent team members across Middle Tennessee took this celebration to heart last week (June 4-8) and volunteered nearly 300 hours with six local Habitat for Humanity partnering organizations.

Upper Cumberland Habitat for Humanity, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, Habitat for Humanity of Montgomery County, Habitat for Humanity of Sumner County, Habitat for Humanity Williamson-Maury and Rutherford County Area Habitat for Humanity were the benefactors of this volunteer assistance. Activities varied from on-site build days to assembly of shed panels to assistance in ReStore locations.

In addition, State Farm donated $140,000 in grant funding across these six organizations to assist with current home build projects in Clarksville, Columbia, Cookeville, Gallatin, Murfreesboro and Nashville.

“Habitat for Humanity and State Farm share a similar mission to help people realize their dreams,” said Corporate Responsibility Analyst Dave Oloffson. “Throughout Middle Tennessee, our Habitat organizations do such great work and we are proud our employees, agents and company were able to support them as we celebrated and reflected on Founder’s Day.”
