     State Farm has given $10,000 to Habitat for Humanity of Kent County for their Homebuyer Financial Education Program for the 2015 year.

     The finances will go towards specific programs that Habitat Kent homebuyers are required to take as a part of their sweat equity hours necessary to buy a home. These programs include Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, which has a national partnership with Habitat for Humanity International.

     The donation was through State Farm’s Good Citizenship Grant under education that states “better educated communities includes providing access to personal financial education and job training,” according to the State Farm website. 

     State Farm has donated $22,000 total in the last two years benefitting Habitat Kent’s homebuyer financial education program.

     “We are grateful for State Farm’s continued investment in providing our homebuyers with quality financial education programs that will impact them for the rest of their lives,” said Jon Hankins, Corporate Relations Specialist at Habitat Kent. 

     Members of State Farm that spurred on the giving to Habitat Kent are Public Affairs Specialist Nick Metzger and State Farm Agent Marsha Veenstra who serves on Habitat Kent’s board of directors.
