Thank you, State Farm® and psi !

To culminate the year, State Farm® attended every iConnect day offered at all Summer Workshops. At the Capital University workshop, State Farm® presented checks to both OASC and iBELIEVE. These funds were used to open opportunities for students across the state to attend OASC programming. Not only did State Farm® help financially, but also provided supplies for our middle level service project to create youth homelessness packages in Columbus. Thank you State Farm® for all that you do for our organization and students.
