The National Council of Jewish Women – St. Louis Section has been selected as the only finalist from Missouri in the Tom’s of Maine “50 States for Good” program and now has a chance to win up to $50,000 in support of the group’s Back-to-School! Store program. The public may vote for the program online at now through Oct. 9

The “50 States for Good” program seeks to uncover local nonprofit groups that address urgent community needs and engage volunteers to get the work done. The Back-to-School! Store brings together more than 500 community volunteers to help children select new clothing and school supplies before the first day of school.

The public vote will determine six winning organizations to share $150,000 in funding. The organization with the most public support will receive $50,000 in sponsorship funding, while five additional organizations each will receive $20,000.
