State Farm got the funds together from local donations from agents and a grant from the main State Farm company.

According to NewsWest 9, the donation was $30,000 which will help the West Texas Food Bank to help out many needy families needing food at this time.

The need has been caused not only by the COVID-19 outbreak but also a quick decline in oil prices.

“Our communities are hurting right now, and our obligation is to step in and help our neighbors,” said State Farm Sales Leader Gary Butler. “Supporting the good work of the West Texas Food Bank will go a long ways towards helping all of us get back on our feet.”

The WTFB distributed more than 5 million meals for children, families, and seniors in 2019.

The USDA is estimating that 41 million people, including 13 million children are currently in need of food donations nationwide.
