SPRINGFIELD, MO — WEDNESDAY, APRIL 3 — This week, Convoy of Hope presented State Farm with the 2023 Leadership Award for their outstanding collaboration. In addition, State Farm team members met at Convoy’s World Distribution Center to pack 558 flood recovery buckets that will be distributed in future disaster responses.

In 2023, State Farm donated nearly $500,000 to support Convoy’s multiple disaster preparedness and response efforts. Included in this total was $50,000 designated for Convoy’s Hurricane Idalia response and $100,000 for the Maui wildfire. A portion of the donation was used to purchase hygiene kit materials, used to pack 15,400 kits. 

“At State Farm part of our mission is to help people recover from the unexpected,” said Scott Carmack, State Farm Agency Sales Leader. “We strive to be a force for good by encouraging State Farm employees and agents to support the communities where they live and work. We are grateful to work alongside Convoy of Hope.”

Convoy of Hope collaborated with State Farm to host 21 packing events across the United States, in 2023. State Farm demonstrates what it means to be a good neighbor by helping people rebuild their lives and empowering employees and associates to support communities through volunteerism.
