We Can Make a Difference by Voting: State Farm Neighborhood Assist #SFNeighborhoodAssist

By: Donna Chaffins | Date: May 27, 2015 | Categories: Charities, Education, Information

I participated in an Influencer Activation for State Farm Neighborhood Assist. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I’ve been voting in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program. And it really does make me feel good knowing I’m helping out great causes in great communities.

My community is important to me. This is where I am bringing my son up. Our communities help us as parents by providing safe places for our children to learn, grow, and play. Whether it’s schools and after school programs or community centers, State Farm Neighborhood Assist helps non-profit organizations right in our own backyards.

State Farm Neighborhood Assist encouraged people to submit a cause that they felt was important in their communities and the chance to raise awareness of this cause. Then enlist people to vote for their cause for a chance to win one of (40) $25,000 grants, exclusively through Facebook.

That’s a lot of assistance.

What is State Farm Neighborhood Assist?

State Farm Neighborhood Assist helps people identify problems in their community, then helps them to connect with local nonprofits that can assist them in solving the problem and then providing an opportunity for communities to receive funding to make a positive influence in their neighborhood.

State Farm Youth Advisory Board

I love that State Farm incorporates a State Farm Youth Advisory Board, which is made up of 30 full-time high school and university students ages 17- 20 from the United States, and challenges them over a two-year term of service, to put into place a $5-million-a-year learning service initiative to address issues in their communities they think are important.

My son is only twelve, but I thought it was important to let him help me decide what non-profit(s) to vote for… you get 10 votes a day and you can choose to cast all 10 of your votes for one program or to spread the 10 votes out among two or more causes.

State Farm Neighborhood Assist Vote on Facebook

One day we may cast all 10 of our votes to a non-profit in Tennessee, which there are 6 of, by the way, or find a non-profit issue in a particular category that is important to you like education, safety, or community development, whether it’s in your own state or somewhere else in the U.S.

It’s so easy to vote and takes just a few seconds to a few minutes, depending on how many non-profits you use your 10 votes on. My son says it’s too easy to vote on State Farm Neighborhood Assist on Facebook that anybody could do it.
