CONGRATULATIONS goes out to the St. Andrew’s Non-Food Pantry!  They are the newest recipient of $9,600.00.  Thank you Joan Davis for presenting.  We are always excited to become more aware of what’s going on in Putnam County!  Though the Non-Food Pantry won, we heard from two other very worthy causes to be considered in the future!

The Non-Food Pantry is a community outreach program serving the citizens of Putnam County.  Our purpose is to distribute the many household products that food stamps do not pay for.  We offer cooking and shopping tips, helping patrons learn how to best utilize their food stamps in buying nutritious food products.

The group started the evening with 90 women and quickly grew to 96!  We’re still aiming to reach 100+ Women Who Care.  It’s never too late to join.  If you’re interested you can find a form on this site or go to

Putnam County has a bright future with the youth in our community!  We had a wonderful, top-notch event hosted by the Area 30 Culinary students mentored by Mary Anne Birt!  We were so impressed with their talent, skill and determination to serve this group and to do it with so much respect, detail and enthusiasm.   The students’ parents and teachers have so much to be proud of!  Thank You for all of your hard work to make this an experience none of the women will forget!


Follow the Signs…… to find your way…… to GIVING in May!

Our event this Wednesday, May 6th will be held at Area 30 Career Center!  Susan Price and Jackie Eitel have been so gracious as to sponsor this wonderful time together!  We are looking forward to hearing 3 more non-profit presentations!

Area 30 is just across the road from Wal-Mart!  Follow these signs to find your way!  We’ll meet on the second floor in the cafeteria.  You may use the stairs or the elevator to get to the cafeteria.

Also, remember to bring a friend!  If she joins 100 Women, then your name will go into the bowl for a chance at a $50 gift card from Starbucks! 

We’ll hear from Judy Miller, on behalf of the Putnam County Emergency Food Pantry.   From the past recipients, Beyond Homeless, Inc. and the Gobin Summer Enrichment Program are eligible for nominating.

Lastly, once our WINNER is announced, we’d like to get a picture with all of the members present with the LARGE check.  It’s hard to get together for a great photo, so we’ve decided to do the picture immediately following.

Can’t wait t see everyone there, to support our community as well as the youth culinary students at Area 30!
