Fowler, alongside 30 Farmers employees and agents, helped install flooring, siding and trim at the home of Erik Lovgren. Lovgren, a long time Sea Bright resident, was displaced from his home nearly two years ago when the storm moved through. The home was damaged by strong winds and flood waters. Lovgren did not evacuate his home, rather he sat at the top of his stairwell and watched the waters flood his first floor. The activities today will bring Lovgren one step closer to returning home.
Today’s event is just the latest of a series of activities launched by Farmers Insurance to help with recovery efforts following disaster:
"The community spirit and desire to bounce back in Sea Bright is amazing," said Jeff Dailey, CEO of Farmers Insurance. "We want to be here to help them through their recovery and get back to normal."
"The recovery effort in Sea Bright and the surrounding communities by Farmers and Sea Bright Rising is incredible and I’m lucky to have the opportunity to help," said Rickie Fowler. "I look forward to another opportunity to come back and help the residents of Sea Bright."
