OKLAHOMA CITY—An insurance company is asking for the community to submit worthy causes that deserve a bit of help this time of year.

State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist program allows citizens across the country to identify issues in their community.

The program will then connect them with a nonprofit that can help solve the problem with one of 40 $25,000 grants.

Some of the causes that have won in the past include helping an animal shelter, building a neighborhood park and helping the homeless in the area.

Organizers say when 3,000 submissions are received by March 6, the State Farm Youth Advisory Board will review all the applicants and identify the top 200.

Those will then be announced on Facebook on April 4, where fans can cast up to 10 votes per day for their favorite causes.
