Parties Don't Matter Here: Sitrin Asking for Your Vote

The provider of the first neuro care facility in Central New York is asking for help from the public.

The Sitrin Health Care Center in New Hartford has been selected as among the final 200 non-profits around the country that are potentially eligible for a grant from State Farm.  The company will ultimately select one hundred companies in recognition of the insurance company's 100th anniversary.


The decision is ultimately a popularity contest.  The non-profits with the most votes from the public will make it to the final 100, and each of those is slated to be given a $25,000 grant.
