Putnam County Children’s Commitee, Inc. provides financial assistance to county children who are in need of aid for health, education, and/or welfare. Our help will begin after all other sources of aid have been exhausted.
Programs and Activities
To Children in Need
We care for the victims of poverty, abuse, family hardship and emergencies. Requests are made by social workers, school personnel, recreation directors, and pastors. Upon examination and approval, the Committee will fund these requests. We also contribute money for school supplies and holiday gifts.
Foster Children’s Care
Each Putnam County foster child receives a monthly allowance for personal expenses, a birthday check, and a check for December holidays, with amounts varying based on the child’s age. These monies are distributed by case workers of the Putnam County Department of Social Services in keeping with privacy laws.
Annually, letters announcing PCCC scholarships are sent to high schools that service Putnam County residents. Priority is given to the financial need of the student, with consideration of academic achievement, extracurricular activities and community service. Scholarships are awarded in varying amounts.
