In our community, kids are starting school behind, parents are struggling to make ends meet, individuals are struggling with hunger, and seniors can’t afford medical care. The United Way’s goal is to raise $200,000 this year to help meet these human service needs here in Putnam County.
Join the United Way of Putnam County in our mission to help people learn more, earn more and lead safe and healthy lives. By focusing on issues that are bigger than any single agency can handle, the United Way both meets the immediate needs in our community, while also creating long-lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place.
