Friends fundraiser
Communities across the United States answered the call from State Farm to submit causes that would make a positive impact in their neighborhoods. Now the Friends of the Animal Shelter in Newport needs your help by voting for them to bring money to their organization. Through Aug. 24, residents who are 18 or older with a valid email address, can vote for their favorite cause at www.neighborhoodassist.com, to help bring a $25,000 grant to each of the Top 40 vote-getters nationwide. Two thousand submissions were received through State Farm Neighborhood Assist, a crowd-sourced philanthropic program that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods. The State Farm Review Committee selected the Top 200 finalists. Among the four Tennessee causes to make the list is The Friends Of The Animal Shelter. Anyone voting is allowed up to 10 votes per day. Voters can use all ten votes on one cause, or spread them out among multiple causes. On September 25, the Top 40 vote-receiving causes will be announced and a $25,000 grant will be awarded to each of the affiliated nonprofits. "State Farm has a rich history of working with local organizations to help build safer, stronger, and better educated communities across the United States," said Ed Woods, Director - Human Resources at State Farm. "The Neighborhood Assist program inspires people to play an active role in bringing grants directly to their community to meet their local needs."
