Girl Scout Gift

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Youth Philanthropy representatives Tari Straziscar (left) and Jared James present a $500 check for a Putnam County Youth Philanthropy Committee grant to Girl Scouts Jordan Adam, Madison Marshall, Laney Willis, Bailey Miller. Scouts not pictured are Sophie Wishert, Abigale Spencer, Krisara Dill and Callee Hibler.
In its latest grant cycle, the Putnam County Youth Philanthropy Committee granted $500 to Girl Scout Troop 10149.

The scouts plan to use the fund to purchase materials needed to clean up the Roachdale Park. Plans for their project include constructing new, weather-resistant picnic tables, putting up new backboards on the basketball goals, as well as painting the bathroom doors.

Grant applications from local youth wanting to make a difference in their community through service projects are reviewed monthly.

Youth interested in receiving a grant for their service project idea, may submit a simple grant application, which can be downloaded at www.pcfoundation.org. Deadlines are the first of each month. Any student elementary through college-aged is eligible to apply.
