It’s no secret that money has been a little tight. Not only for individuals, but also schools, cities, and states. “Budget cuts” has been a common phrase for the past few years and when budgets are cut, something loses funding. When government funding falls through, smaller initiatives and organizations that work towards bettering their communities could suffer.
Perhaps the local park isn’t quite as pristine as it once was. Or maybe after school programs that kept youth off the streets no longer have the funds to stay open. Many of our communities rely on outside funding in order to help keep our communities our communities. State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist initiative is one way that local communities and causes can get a little bit of “assistance.”
