End Hunger in Calvert County is asking the public to vote for it to bring money to the community.

Communities across the United States answered the call from State Farm to submit causes that would make a positive impact in their neighborhoods. Now, End Hunger in Calvert County is asking the public to vote for it to bring money to the community. From Aug. 15 through 24, U.S. residents who are 18 and older with a valid email address can vote for their favorite cause at www.neighborhoodassist.com to help bring a $25,000 grant to each of the top 40 vote-getters.

Two thousand submissions were received through State Farm Neighborhood Assist, a crowd-sourced philanthropic program that empowers communities to identify issues in their neighborhoods, a press release states. At least one cause was received from each state. The State Farm Review Committee selected the top 200 finalists.

The 200 causes have until Aug. 24 at 11:59 p.m. to rally votes and anyone voting is allowed up to 10 votes per day. Voters can use them all on one cause, or spread them out in any way among multiple causes.
