KENNEBUNK, Maine — Tom’s of Maine is awarding nonprofits grants to advance and draw attention to their work in the fourth annual “50 States for Good.”

The Maine-based natural products company says the finalists from every state and the District of Columbia are in the running to share in $150,000.

As in the past, online voting will determine the winners. The organization with the most votes will receive $50,000 while five runners-up will receive $20,000 each.

Last year, winners planted new trees in the wake of Hurricane Ike in Texas as well as fresh produce for the elderly and homebound in North Carolina. printed on July 22, 2017
