SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The St. Vincent de Paul Society of St. Joseph County’s Sweet Dreams Ministry was selected among 200 finalists in the State Farm Neighborhood Assist grant program.

Running through Friday, the public can vote for their favorite causes with the program, with the top 100 causes receiving a $25,000 grant.

The Sweet Dreams Ministry is currently ranked #31 in this lineup. Their selected cause is providing children in the community with new mattresses and bedding supplies. They have provided 437 beds to St. Joseph County children since 2017.
