State Farm has been a long time supporter of the local American Red Cross and continues to be a major partner again this year. The funds received from the Good Neighbor Citizenship Safe Neighbors philanthropy program will allow the Red Cross to provide services right here in our community.
“Thanks to the phenomenal support of State Farm Insurance Companies, the Red Cross will be able to continue delivering its lifesaving mission of helping people prevent, prepare for, and respond to emergencies. We are grateful for the strong partnership State Farm has shown over the years, which has allowed the Red Cross to help our communities be a safer place to work and live in,” said Angie Gresley, Health & Safety Director of the Red Cross.
"I commend State Farm for their generous donation to the Red Cross and its life saving mission," said State Senator Mike Nofs. "This funding will help the Red Cross maintain its ability to respond to calls for help in times of crisis."
This grant funding will support our preparedness program that educates children and adults in health preparedness, disaster preparedness, and emergency response. This program better educates citizens to the potential harm and loss that can occur from an emergency or disaster. The Red Cross will reach over 17,000 people in Calhoun and Branch Counties this year providing them with educational materials, presentations, trainings, and classes on preparedness and response. All of this has been made possible by the extraordinary support of State Farm Insurance Companies.
