The Ferst Foundation of Putnam County provides age-appropriate books to approximately 800 children in Putnam County. Regardless of income level, any child who resides in the county can receive a book each month from birth to age five simply by signing up. Those interested may register at www.ferstfoundation.org.
All money to cover the cost of these books must be raised locally. The major fundraising event is Aces Ferst Casino Night, which is held each fall, as a joint fundraiser between Putnam Ferst and Greene Ferst. The event includes gaming activities, a silent auction, a live auction, and a raffle.
Putnam Ferst also sponsors a Market Day/Yard Sale at the Plaza each spring. Those interested in being a vendor at this event are encouraged to contact Putnam Ferst at any time. An additional yard sale is held each fall at another location. Tax-deductible donations for the yard sale are accepted all year long.
Individuals wishing to volunteer, donate, or receive additional information may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
