Five years in a row, State Farm's "Good Neighbor Grant Program" has awarded a $500 grant to St. Mary's School. They donate to a qualifying nonprofit organization where an eligible associate volunteers 40 hours or more in a calendar year. Christina Legner works for State Farm and submits an application annually. It took her 10 minutes to fill out the first year and 5 minutes after that. Together, she and State Farm have brought in $2,500 that has gone toward teacher development, field trips and guest speakers. Imagine if all of us asked our Human Resources Department at work if they have grants for education and what we could do as an employee to receive it. If you are a working parishioner or school parent JUST ASK. Oh the possibilities!
