Putnam CAP 2016
School Supplies Program

It’s not too early to start thinking about school supplies.

The items in our 2016 Wish List are greatly needed for Putnam Community Action Program’s School Supply Project.
Donations are being accepted now through
Friday, August 26, 2016.

These donations prove to be a huge resource to the needy Putnam families we serve. School readiness is a very expensive time of year, and it causes a severe strain on the budget of low-income families. Thank you for your interest in Putnam Community Action Program and for your support to these families.

Donations may be dropped off at the CAP office located at 121 Main St., Brewster, NY

Here’s our
“2016 Wish List”
of items that we need
to make the program a success!

In 2016 Putnam CAP will hold our
Annual School Supplies Program
at the Methodist Church in Brewster, NY.


Tuesday - 8/30 - 8:30 To 4:00
Wednesday - 8/31 - 8:30 To 6:30
Thursday - 9/01 - 8:30 To 4:00

The Helpful Guide To American Schools

    The Helpful Guide to American Schools was created to assist immigrant parents in their quest to support their children enrolled in local schools.  It provides general information on school policies, culture & norms, and is a tool to assist children assimilating to the American school system.

   The guide was created by Putnam CAP with the valuable assistance of the Social Workers from Carmel & Brewster High Schools- Karin Brenner (CHS), Henrietta Lodge (BHS).
