Brief: State Farm gives money for floods

DES MOINES, Iowa -- State Farm Insurance has announced it will contribute $100,000 to the United Way 2008 Midwest Flood Recovery Fund.

The other half will be divided among Nebraska, Wisconsin and Minnesota, where catastrophic storms also have caused widespread damage. These four states, along with North Dakota and South Dakota, comprise State Farm's Heartland Zone.

"Our hearts go out to our neighbors whose homes and families have been touched by this devastating flood," said Terry Barton, Vice President -- Agency. "State Farm agents, employees and national catastrophe teams are doing all they can to help our customers begin putting their lives back together. This donation will help our communities begin rebuilding."
