Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade Receives Grant From State Farm®

For Immediate Release

February 4, 2013

MIAMI, February 4, 2013 ‐ Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade today announced it has received a $5,000 Community Development grant on behalf of State Farm®.

The grant will be used towards preserving affordable housing in Miami-Dade and is specifically designated to fund materials for the rehabilitation services of homes whose residents are low-income, elderly or disabled.

The objective of Rebuilding Together Miami's rehab work is to provide a safe, dry and healthy house for low-income homeowners so they may remain in their homes. Each year Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade organizes a National Rebuild Day on the last Saturday of April in which 20-25 homes are rehabilitated. Service projects, such as National Rebuild Day, would not be possible without necessary support and funding for the materials used in home repair. Rebuilding Together Miami-Dade is excited to have the continued support of State Farm to meet the organization's goals. For more information on State Farm® and their charitable giving, contact Jose Soto, Public Affairs Specialist, at jose.soto.cwme@statefarm.com or (786) 394-9688.
