Thank you for Voting for Recycle Montana, State Farm Neighborhood Assist Finalist!
We will know the results in June!!
Recycle Montana is a State Farm Neighborhood Assist® Top 200 Finalist!
Recycle Montana needs your help by voting for them to receive a $25,000 grant from State Farm® to purchase a recycling trailer that can be taken or loaned to rural Montana communities for recycling events. Starting April 26 at 10:00 pm, U.S. residents who are 18 and older with a valid email address can vote for Recycle Montana at https://tinyurl.com/35wd6fz7
State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a crowd-sourced philanthropic initiative that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods. The State Farm Review Committee selected the non-profit Recycle Montana as one of the top 200 finalists from 4,000 submissions. Only two submissions from Montana made the top cut.
Candi Zion, Executive Director states, “Most of rural Montana communities have an unmet need to recycle because they lack the ability to collect and transport recyclables to the bigger Montana city recycling companies. Materials in rural MT that could otherwise be recycled instead end up in farm and ranch dumps or are burned, causing detrimental effects to air quality.”
Ty Cordova of State Farm shared that, “The number one reason organizations don’t win is because their voters start dwindling off as the voting period goes on. A sustained voting block for the entire 10 days is essential to have a shot at winning.”
Recycle Montana has until May 6 at 9:59 am to rally votes. Anyone voting is allowed up to 10 votes per day. On June 7, the top 100 vote-receiving causes will be announced at www.neighborhoodassist.com and a $25,000 grant will be awarded to each of the affiliated nonprofits.
