I participated in an Influencer Activation for State Farm Neighborhood Assist. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
State Farm Neighborhood Assist is giving you the chance to make a difference where it matters most to you – in your own neighborhood. Neighborhood Assist is a program from State Farm that connects communities and people who need assistance to non-profits in their own area that may be able to help. State Farm Neighborhood Assist is currently giving you the opportunity to select from among 200 programs nationwide to determine which 40 programs will each receive a $25,000 grant through the State Farm Neighborhood Assist Facebook page.
I know don’t know too much about insurance, but I do think that corporate responsibility and the need for service dollars to be employed at local levels is so, so important! We raise our kids in our communities, after all, so why wouldn’t we want dollars to stay in our community? Right now through the end of June 3, you can vote here on Facebook. It’s up to you to select the winning organizations. The top 40 vote collectors will be awarded their share of funding by the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program. You can vote up to 10 times each day, so hurry – time is running short!
State Farm Neighborhood Assist also sponsors a Youth Advisory Board comprised of 30 students, ages 17-20, whose task it is to implement a $5 million a year service-learning program to address issues important to youth and communities. The Board is self-directed and completely empowered to select the issues they believe are important, and because the Members are pulled from across the nation and from among diverse backgrounds multiple perspectives are represented.
The goal of the program is to build safer, stronger and smarter communities. Every neighborhood benefits with an assist, and with State Farm Neighborhood Assist we are all excited to see the goodness grow. I voted for a program that supports nutrition for kids here in New York, you can sort through the 200 finalists to select your favorite. Together, we can make a positive impact in our communities! State Farm is definitely doing their part to help out our communities and our kids! Be sure to check out what previous winners have been able to do with the grant awards here.
