State Farm Donates $5,000 to the American Red Cross

Mississippi's largest home and auto insurer is showing support for the American Red Cross relief efforts following the recent tornado outbreaks in southeast Mississippi. State Farm agents will present a $5,000 check to the Red Cross at 3:00pm, Monday, January 5th at Woodlawn Church, 1452 Old Highway 98 East, Columbia.

The Red Cross has provided shelter, meals, and water to residents affected by the Christmas week tornadoes. Additional storms over the past weekend may require additional resources for the organization and the communities they serve. “State Farm is proud to support the Red Cross relief efforts,” says State Farm spokesman Roszell Gadson. “We feel it's important to help the organization continue its work helping the community recover.”

State Farm policyholders impacted by the tornadoes can report claims by contacting their agent or by calling 1-(800)-SF-CLAIM (1-800-732-5246). You can also report claims online at www.statefarm.com.
