State Farm awards $20,000 matching grant to Clemson Habitat for Humanity student chapter for annual homecoming build
It was my distinct honor to be a part of the Bowman Field ceremony recognizing Clemson University’s Habitat for Humanity Student Chapter. The organization is one of only 20 recipients nationally (and one of only two student chapters) to receive a generous matching State Farm grant, and officials from the insurance company took part in the Wednesday check presentation. Clemson’s Habitat chapter was recognized for its work in leveraging volunteer man hours to make affordable housing more accessible for others in our community. The grant is one of State Farm’s Neighborhood of Good initiatives, which are designed to help connect neighborhoods with service-minded neighbors resulting in acts of service that improve quality of life.
Many thanks to the Greenville News/Anderson Independent-Mail for covering this presentation, which was part of the 25th annual Homecoming Week build. Since 1993, Clemson students have partnered with Pickens County Habitat for Humanity to build a home on Bowman Field.
The opportunity to represent the good people of District 3, where acts of service and volunteerism like this are more the norm than the exception, is my distinct honor and privilege as your state House representative. Go Tigers, and Happy Homecoming to all. Beat NC State!
