Moreau Community Center has been selected as one of the 200 finalists in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist® program! Our submission, along with the other finalists, is live on Facebook, and anyone on Facebook can log on and vote for our cause. The 40 causes that receive the most votes will be announced on June 16, and a $25,000 grant will be awarded to the affiliated nonprofits to implement their solution.
Although free and reduced breakfast and lunch programs provide significant nutritional benefits to students during the school day, many disadvantaged children do not receive sufficient food when school is not in session. The BackPack Program helps alleviate child hunger by discreetly providing children with backpacks full of nutritious and easy-to-prepare food on Friday afternoons so they have food to eat throughout the weekend. The Moreau Community Center is proud to help serve over 90 students in each of the four elementary schools in the South Glens Falls School District. Our organization strives to improve the lives and welfare of people in our community. We can further that mission by rallying together and encouraging others to join us in support by voting.
We do not have funding to continue this program for the 2015 – 16 school year, therefore winning this voting competition, finishing within the top 40, and securing this $25,000 Grant is vital.
To support the Moreau Community Center and vote, visit www.moreaucommunitycenter.orgor The Moreau Community Center Facebook Page, then click on the “Vote” button to show your support for “Pack til They’re Back”. The voting phase is open from May 14 – June 3 and any Facebook user is eligible to vote up to 10 times per day. Checking the box to apply all your 10 votes to our cause is easy and a ‘one and done’.
State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative that lets communities determine where grant funding is awarded, exclusively through Facebook. The initiative utilizes the State Farm Youth Advisory Board to vet submissions for causes and allows Facebook users to vote for their favorite cause, pushing them into the final 40 grant winners. The program has been inspired by the incredible number of neighborhoods that are coming together to solve a problem or improve their community.
