Human services organizations abound in Putnam County.
To assist 12 of those organizations, the Banner Graphic will launch "Pay it Forward" -- an initiative aimed at bringing awareness and financial assistance to them -- at the end of January.
Every month in 2009, a different Putnam County not-for-profit organization will be spotlighted with a full page in the Banner Graphic. Readers will learn about the function of the spotlighted organization, as well as how they can help by volunteering or making donations.
Sponsors are being sought for the "Pay it Forward" pages. For $50 per month, individuals and businesses will receive a spot on the page. Half the money raised each month in ad sales will be donated back to the spotlighted charity.
The features will run the last week of each month.
The Banner Graphic is asking readers to help decide which 12 organizations will be spotlighted. There is a voting poll open at the paper's Web site, www.bannergraphic.com, and votes can also be mailed to 100 N. Jackson St., Greencastle, IN 46135 or called in to 653-5151, Ext. 24.
To inquire about advertising, call John York at 653-5151, Ext. 19.
