PUTNAM, CT – The Putnam Congregational Church recently donated $2,000 to the Day Kimball Hospital Deary Memorial Cancer Fund with a portion of proceeds from their 9th annual golf tournament. Each year, the golf tournament raises money for two scholarships and a donation to a community organization. In previous years, the church has supported Daily Bread, the Thompson Ecumenical Empowerment Group, Habitat for Humanity, Day Kimball Hospital's Chaplaincy Program and the ARC of Quinebaug Valley.

“At a time when the Putnam Congregational Church could certainly use these funds for its own needs, this community of faith instead chose to help those coping with cancer,” said Pamela Watts, interim director of development. “We are deeply moved by their generosity and are extremely grateful for this gift.”
