GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Public Schools received a large donation from State Farm Friday.

The school's Academy of Design and Construction received a $20,000 donation.

The money will go toward supporting the district's partnership with Habitat for Humanity Kent County, a program that teaches real-world construction skills to students while showing the importance for volunteering.

Students involved get to help build a habitat home for a local family.

School officials say that they are thankful for a commitment to something they truly enjoy doing each year, and that students also enjoy being part of this process.

More than 30 students are helping to build the district's 10th home.

Habitat for Humanity Kent County has served more than 450 families just here in Kent County.
