TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida State University Habitat for Humanity Chapter recently received a $20,000 grant from State Farm, which they must match by mid-May.

Putting that money together will be enough to build one home for a family in Leon County.

The group said they built nine houses last year and they're hopeful in 2021 the group can continue to change people's lives for the better.

"You never know who the people that you're helping, what they're going to turn out to be or turn out to do, so it's definitely a phenomenal feeling to be able to see how your efforts, your volunteering, your time, your donations can help someone literally have a better life," said grant coordinator for the chapter Joy Daniels.

So far the chapter has only raised $3,000.
