Kids Reach Full Potential through Sweet Science at The Bloc

Chicago youth program uses boxing training to help underserved kids.

The Bloc is a youth program in Chicago that uses boxing training as a way to help underserved kids reach their full potential. In 2020, the Bloc received a $25,000 State Farm Neighborhood Assist® grant, a program that annually awards $25,000 grants to 40 nonprofit organizations to help fund neighborhood improvement projects. State Farm Neighborhood Assist is back for its tenth year in 2021.

Submissions for this year’s program will be accepted starting June 2 at 1 p.m. ET and will end once 2,000 submissions are received. The voting phase will follow from Aug. 18-27, where the public can vote for their favorite cause from the list of 200 finalists. The 40 winners will be announced Sept. 29.
