GOSHEN — Ten State Farm agents have pulled together to raise $5,000 for a nonprofit organization in Goshen that helps families get back on their feet after escaping abuse.
State Farm agents who donated to the Little House that Ben Built:
- Ben Baier, Elkhart
- Dean Brown, Granger
- Dan Buchman, Syracuse
- Amy Henry, Indianapolis
- JP Noak, Granger
- Kathy Nobles, Elkhart
- Scott Roth, Goshen
- Ot Schroeder, Warsaw
- April Stewart-Fryman, Evansville
- Rachel Wain, Elkhart
The group of insurance agents donated the money to the Little House that Ben Built, a home created by Scott and Lori Roth in memory of their son who died in 2009.
For every State Farm agent, employee or retiree who volunteers at least 40 hours a year, the insurance company’s foundation awards $500 to a nonprofit organization through its Good Neighbor Grant Program.
“As State Farm agents, we are sometimes considered competitors with each other, but they were willing to come together and help out with the Little House that Ben Built,” said Scott Roth, who works for State Farm in Goshen. “It means a lot.”
