A Sample of Past Winners
Here are just a few notable examples of how Neighborhood Assist was able to help life go right for worthy causes throughout the US.
NE Ohio Chiari Education
Chiari Malformation (CM) and Syringomyelia (SM) cause debilitating pain for hundreds of children and adults in Northeastern Ohio. The grant helped provide important education for medical professionals.
You're Safe!
In Benson, MN, the fences and the backstops at the community ball fields had become unsafe over time. This grant allowed them to improve the fields and make them safe for everyone to enjoy.
Cut Bank Walking Trail
With highway traffic and huge semi tractor-trailers constantly barreling through the main street of Cut Bank, Montana, the town desperately needed a designated, safer walking/biking trail.
