State Farm is helping plant the way to better business!

statefarmgift Dorcelin Bazil, State Farm Insurance Agent, gave Greater Hidden Hills Community Development Corporation the first installment of a $3,000 grant for the beautification efforts. Board Member Nadine Rivers-Johnson accepted the check in early November.

We will use State Farm’s grant on Phase II. We just completed planting the median on S. Hairston, near Redan Road. It looks terrific! We’re working closely with Keep DeKalb Beautiful.  Our private-public partnership is an effective and gratifying way to promote investment in our community.

Our goal is to beautify all quadrants of this key intersection in our community.  Improving the streetscape will encourage people to take a second look at local businesses and will attract new development. Our efforts so far – and recognition by prestigious companies like State Farm – are already building community pride.

Businesses’ and Residents’ Donations Growing! Planting Day Oct. 29

We are pleased to announce that the national business community is supporting our efforts to beautify the streetscape at S. Hairston and Redan Road. We have received a $3,000 pledge from State Farm Insurance and a $500 pledge from Hackney Real Estate Services (owner of Crowe’s Plaza on the SE corner). 

Many local businesses have contributed to the Phase One campaign – landscape improvements to the S. Hairston median just south of Redan Road.  We thank Bruster’s, Frierson Design,  Taryn Lawrence State Farm, Wells Fargo, Redan Package Store, and Jiffy Lube. We also thank the Hidden Hills Civic Association and more than three dozen individuals who have contributed. The fundraising continues as we prepare for our first installation.
