Winter Haven, FL. 11-5-2020 – In just 10 days this fall, 145,000 people cast 3.9 Million votes in support of their favorite causes. As a result, 40 communities, in 22 states will be getting an assist from State Farm.
State Farm is proud to announce the Top 40 vote-getting causes. Roots and Wings in Delray Beach, Voices for Children of Tampa Bay, and Family Promise of Brevard in Rockledge, FL, are three out of 16 Florida organizations that have won $25,000 grants to improve their communities.
Two thousand cause submissions were accepted in July at www.neighborhoodassist.com, a crowd-sourced philanthropic grant program that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods. The State Farm Review Committee selected the Top 200 finalists and public voting determined the Top 40.
“State Farm is proud to support the good neighbors who will be implementing the winning projects in their communities,” said Annette Martinez, Senior Vice President at State Farm. “We look forward to seeing the impact of these grants.”
