State Farm Donation Benefits Boys Town Youth Drivers Education

State Farm Check Presentation

​On Friday, Sept. 21, State Farm presented a generous donation of $15,000 at the Cowboys' homecoming football game to help provide driver's education cost for the Boys Town youth.

State Farm's mission is to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize their dreams. By providing this donation State Farm is truly making a difference in the lives of so many here at Boys Town.

In 2016, there were 2,820 fatal teen driving accidents and it continues to be the leading cause of death in teens. The donation will go toward educating Boys Town students to be the best drivers possible.

"The importance of driver education is not only a pivotal part of new drivers foundation, it also builds confidence," said Anthony Anderson, State Farm Agent. "Boys Town's stewardship of young people aligns with State Farms dedication to the drivers of tomorrow."

At the game the Nebraska State Patrol also demonstrated a "seatbelt convincer" showing the importance of wearing a seatbelt at all times.

Every year, approximately 75 Boys Town juniors and seniors take driver's education at Cornhusker Driving School.

Big thank you to State Farm on this generous donation for our youth at Boys Town that will ensure our youth receive the skills needed to become safe drivers in order to protect themselves and those in the community as well.
