The State Farm Neighborhood Assist Program is a yearly chance for State Farm to give back to 40 communities to help make a difference. Yes, 40 winners will receive a $25,000 grant, so they are giving away a total of $1 million!!! Isn't that amazing?
As a mom who tries to do our part for our small community, I know $25,000 can go a very long way! Just imagine a community garden or a program for our children. I think Canton, where I live, could definitely benefit from a community garden where our children can learn all about organic gardening. They could learn about each of the plants, their nutritional value as well as how to grow a successful garden. Something else I think our community needs is a program or resource for children with Neurofibromatosis. There is nothing like that around here and, with so many children being diagnosed, this would be a wonderful resource for parents and children that educates and shows them support. I think our children are our future, so programs for children are what most interest me.

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for MomCentral Consulting on behalf of State Farm and I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
