Village Project named a finalist for $25K grant

Calling all community members: Village Project (VP) has a chance to bring $25,000 to our community!

“We are so excited to be named one of the top 200 finalists in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant program,” said Executive Director Meredith LaVecchia. “We really need everyone to rally behind our cause and cast your votes for Village Project to help us!”

“It really is like a popularity contest,” Meredith says. “It will all boil down to the top 100 nonprofits that get the most votes. So, we’re really counting on the community and beyond to help us win.”

It’s easy: to vote, simply scan the accompanying QR code.

Voting is open until midnight on Friday, May 6, and you can vote up to 10 times per day – every day – for our cause. VP is hoping to be named one of the winners who will be announced on Tuesday, June 7.

This money would allow VP to continue to provide nourishing, healthful meals and service to our neighbors experiencing cancer. VP has increased families served by almost 25% in two years. During this same time, our food and packaging costs have grown by more than 20%.

“Because VP accepts all clients in active cancer treatment living within our five neighboring communities,” says Meredith, “we continue to be challenged to streamline costs while still providing a high level of client care.”

Any questions? Please contact VP at 440-348-9401.
