Fremont Area Habitat Receives Grant from State Farm for Flood Recovery

FREMONT – Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity has received a State Farm grant for $23,000 to aid in the repair of homes as part of their recovery work , fixing up local homes after last March’s natural disaster.

Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity, State Farm, and Midland University students will be working together on Saturday, September 21st to make repairs to several area residences still suffering from damaged caused by flooding last spring. Fremont Area Habitat for Humanity has been actively working on flood recovery and repair since mid-March.  Fremont Habitat is a key member of the Dodge County Long Term Recovery Group and most recently has been working to repair homes of flood disaster survivors.

State Farm Insurance wanted to help Fremont Area Habitat in this mission, and did so with a $23,000 grant. “State Farm is pleased to support recovery efforts through this disaster services grant,” said Ed Woods, HR Director at State Farm. “As our mission is to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected, and realize their dreams, we hope this grant goes a long way in helping the community of Fremont recover from the historical flooding.”

Construction and “coffee break” volunteers are welcome for the Saturday, September 21st build. To see a list of opportunities, visit Habitat’s volunteer hub at:
