State Farm & Convoy Ride Out the Storms Together
State Farm and Convoy of Hope are on the frontlines during the storms of life. While they provide different services, the heart behind what they do is the same.
“For over 100 years, State Farm has focused on disaster preparedness and recovery,” said State Farm Corporate Responsibility Analyst Kelly Pargett. “When a catastrophe hits, we are there before, during, and after to help our customers and the community recover.”
Convoy of Hope shares in that commitment. Teams remain ready to help people during crises — especially those who don’t have access to the resources they need.
“Big storms can be scary. Most of the time, this is someone’s first — and only — major catastrophe they will ever experience in their lifetime,” said Stacy Lamb of Convoy of Hope’s Disaster Services team. “But hope and optimism prevail for the community, knowing that organizations like Convoy of Hope and State Farm exist to help recovery efforts.”
State Farm and Convoy of Hope often end up side-by-side in otherwise empty parking lots after disasters. But for both agencies, the provision of relief continues for months — even years — after the storm passes.
“Going back into communities to continue the recovery years after the catastrophe makes me proud to be part of this company and of our agents serving these communities,” Pargett said. “We have helped communities replant trees, rebuild homes, and donated many items to those in need.”
The Good Neighbor Grant
The $30,000 State Farm Good Neighbor Grant has allowed Convoy of Hope to expand its disaster resources across the nation. Convoy is thankful for State Farm’s generosity and the capacity to reach even more people through their giving.
“We are thankful for the partnership between State Farm and Convoy of Hope. We love the instant impact that allows our organization to assist others in need right after a disaster strikes,” said Stacy.
Every storm is different, but the mission that drives State Farm and Convoy of Hope remains consistent: helping people prepare, recover, and rebuild. Thanks to partners like State Farm, Convoy will continue to provide relief amid disaster.
