State Farm® Supports Community Volunteer Needs Across the Country in Honor of Good Neighbor Day

In honor of Good Neighbor Day, State Farm, the Good Neighbor brand, is organizing volunteer opportunities at events across the country throughout September and October as part of its Neighborhood of Good®. Volunteer opportunities will support local needs in education, family well-being and youth services. Established nearly 40 years ago today, Good Neighbor Day, September 28th, highlights the role every neighbor plays in making a positive impact on local communities.

Collaborating with nonprofits, events are planned for Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, Philadelphia and Phoenix, and in 30 additional cities. Each and every neighbor is encouraged to join and invite a friend, family member or coworker in honor of Good Neighbor Day to volunteer and double the impact in every community. To find an event near you or additional ways to volunteer visit www.NeighborhoodofGood.com.

Good Neighbor Day is an important moment that reminds us to roll up our sleeves, get involved and make a positive contribution. From the elderly neighbor down the street who needs help with yard work to the neighbor across the country who needs large-scale disaster relief, we know together we can turn caring into doing.

In further support of local communities, State Farm today announced the winners of its annual Neighborhood Assist® grant program. In its sixth year, the Neighborhood Assist grant program provides $25,000 grants to 40 causes that help make communities safer, stronger or better educated. The program asks individuals to identify, submit and vote on causes, with the top organizations receiving grants. To learn more about the program or to see the winning organizations, visit www.NeighborhoodAssist.com.

Together we can turn the power of caring into the act of doing in neighborhoods across the country.
