Disclosure- I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for State Farm. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.
There are so many causes, large and small, around the United States and Canada that make a huge impact in the communities that they help. Many of them need not only volunteers to help them but also financial support to help them do more. State Farm Neighborhood Assist program put out the call to communities across the United States and Canada to help create a positive impact in their communities. 4,000 causes were submitted as part of this year’s State Farm Neighborhood Assist. The top 200 causes have been selected by the State Farm Youth Advisory Board and they need your “assist” to help vote them into the top 40. These top 40 causes will each earn a $25,000 grant to help their communities!
So how do you vote? Simply get the FREE State Farm Neighborhood Assist Facebook application and you can vote daily for your favorite cause, or causes, and help bring $25,000 to the top 40 vote getters.
VOTING ENDS MAY 16th SO VOTE NOW AND VOTE DAILY!!!!
Giving back to the community is so important to my family. There are so many ways to help and I really try to instill this in my girls. I volunteer at their school a lot both in their classrooms and all around the school with the PTO. It is important to me for my girls to see that their school and the local community are important to me. We also participate in fundraisers to donate food and toys for those in the community that need help. I have taught my daughters that it is better to give than to receive. That is a hard concept for small children but when I see my girls pick things out in the store to buy with their own money to give to children who have nothing I know they are on the right track. Last year I had the privilege of being able to donate 40 pairs of brand new pajamas to a local women’s shelter. What made the experience even better was overhearing my daughter tell her friend about how she was so proud of her mother.
If your community was eligible in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist voting, what would you like to see the donations fund? I would love more money to help feed the hungry families in my community. So many children only get to eat the school provided breakfasts and lunches because their families don’t have enough money for nutritious dinners. No child, or person for that matter, should go hungry so that is where I’d love to see donations go to in my community.
Please make sure to vote daily from now until May 16th!
Here are a few of the winners from last year. Check out what amazing things these causes are doing in their communities:
