School Supply Drive

With the recent flooding in our state, many children were left with little to nothing. With the new school year quickly approaching those children are also in need of school supplies. The Putnam County Board of Education and the West Virginia Board of Education are hosting a collection drive now through July 29th. The Putnam County Library (all branches) will serve as a drop-off location, along with the Putnam County Chamber Of Commerce and others throughout the county.
