Volunteers Committed to Build in Anchorage
Anchorage, AK – Local volunteers partnered with Habitat for Humanity for a Volunteer Build Day on Wednesday, September 28. Continuing more than three decades of volunteer and donation efforts helping create safer, stronger communities, State Farm® was a sponsor of the Volunteer Build Day at Habitat for Humanity - Anchorage. In addition to providing volunteers to help frame the seven new Habitat homes in this year’s on Neighbor Drive in NE Anchorage, State Farm donated a $10,000 State Farm Good Neighborhood Citizenship grant to Habitat for Humanity – Anchorage to assist with this year’s Build. In a time of economic uncertainty, when home mortgages are becoming further out of reach of many working families, State Farm is working to strengthen neighborhoods and help families achieve the dream of home ownership through philanthropic donations and local volunteerism. “We continue to support Anchorage’s revitalization by collaborating with partners to create healthy communities,” says Anchorage Agent, Todd Jackson. “Our long-term partnership with Habitat programs helps us fulfill our commitment to building strong communities,” says Anchorage Agent, Stacey Roy. It is inspiring to witness 17 associates willing to pick up hammers to improve the lives of families in Anchorage needing decent shelter,” said Public Affairs Specialist Walt Allen.
