The Putnam County Children’s Committee is pleased to announce it has awarded a scholarship to Brianna Sayegh, a Brewster High School senior. “Ms. Sayegh is a hard-working, deserving student,” said a Committee member, “and the $2,000 gift will be of benefit as she heads off to SUNY Oneonta in the fall.”
The PCCC, which celebrated their 100th anniversary last year, is a local non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to Putnam County’s children in need of aid for health, education and/or welfare. The PCCC uses the monies it raises to contribute to scholarships, as well as various programs and activities. These include: caring for victims of poverty, abuse, family hardships and emergencies, as well as those children in foster care. PCCC also contributes throughout the year for school supplies, foster children’s care, and holiday gifts. Requests are made by social workers, school personnel, recreation directors and pastors. Upon examination and approval, the Committee will fund as many of these requests as possible.
One hundred percent of all donations go toward these programs that give direct help to Putnam County residents. The Committee members are all volunteers and pay for the cost of all fundraising and operational expenses.
If you would like to donate to the Putnam County Children’s Committee for the good of local children in need, please mail your check or gift card donation to: PCCC, P.O. Box 187, Carmel, NY 10512.
