Help Bring In $25K To After School Program

Project MOST is competing for a grant from State Farm.

Project MOST, an after school program in East Hampton and Springs, is one of 200 finalists in a $25,000 grant competition, and you can help them win.

The State Farm Neighborhood Assist is a youth-led philanthropic program that gives out 40 grants to nonprofits each in the amount of $25,000.

"Project MOST is asking the community to come together to help the children and youth of East Hampton continue to have opportunity to grow and learn after school. Help the kids win this grant," Tim Bryden, the executive director, said. "Project MOST coincides with parents' work schedules and is regarded by parents as an invaluable resource and we provide employment for 35 of our high school and college youth."

Supporters may visit projectmost.com and vote everyday, up to 10 times per day, until April 22.

In recent years, Project MOST has suffered funding cuts to its program.
