The Putnam County Sheriff Department is hosting a collection drive this weekend.
They'll be in the agency's parking lot on Saturday, starting at 11am, collecting food, toys, clothing, toiletries, and selling baked goods from small businesses. Representatives from the Veterans Affairs, the U.S. Marine Corps, and Sheriff’s Department will be collecting goods for Veterans and families in need in Putnam County.
All cash proceeds and monetary donations will be presented to the family of Mike Schmidt, who was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2017. Prior to joining the Sheriff's Department, he was a civilian dispatcher for the Carmel Police Department.
