Character Education Week Happening Now
Character Education Week is happening this week!
Putnam Co. R-I Character Education Week will be held on
February 5-8, 2019.
Tuesday: FOOD FOR THOUGHT DAY
It is important to help others and we would like to help support our Buddy Pack Program. Please donate $1.00. Every dollar donated buys $21.00 worth of food. We are also Grateful for our community; please bring in your non-perishable food items & canned goods to help those in need in our own community. (Please no outdated or open items) All food items will remain in our county at the local food pantry.
Wednesday: CITIZENSHIP DAY
We show good CITIZENSHIP by taking care of our elderly friends and family. We will collect donations for BINGO prizes for our friends at the Putnam County Care Center. Prizes that residents enjoy are individually wrapped candy, snacks or small knick-knacks that are new.
Thursday: RESPONSIBILITY DAY We will help support our local meals-on-wheels program through the PC Cafe’ & Resource Center. Items to donate for the center are dish soap, paper towels, and napkins.
Friday: CARING DAY We are going to support our local Children’s Division & Juvenile Office and collect backpack starter kits for children who enter foster care. Today we will be collecting backpacks or totes with toothbrushes/toothpaste, shampoo, body wash, and blankets. These backpacks will be given to children when they enter the custody of the state.
We will be collecting donations to celebrate Character Education Week. Please send items with your child if you are able to help support our community organizations.
