Year Founded

Purpose of Fund
The primary purpose of the Fund shall be to provide Christmas gifts for eligible families with children requesting assistance.

History of Fund

The Giving Tree has been serving Putnam County for several years. Our mission is to organize community efforts to support families in need of assistance during the Christmas season.

Children with presents

Each year schools and other community organizations assist us by selecting families who are eligible. The Putnam County Giving Tree meets with families to understand their needs and wants.  All applicants’ personal information is kept confidential. With the generous support of our community, we are able to help approximately 850 children in Putnam County each year.

Boy by Christmas tree
It is our hope that any individual, church, business, or organization wishing to assist a family (or families) in need will allow us to lend a hand by providing the information of the children that need assistance. We will work with them to provide the eligible families within their own local community.

The Putnam County Giving Tree provides an efficient, coordinated, county-wide resource helping caring people buy Christmas presents for needy Putnam County children aged 18 and under, avoiding duplications in services and effort.
