The Putnam County Community Center is a not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization that provides a variety of services to the aging & disabled. As a community center, we also strive to provide programs & activities for all ages in our community. Located off of Route 71 in Standard, the PCCC has been serving residents of Putnam and surrounding counties since 1975. The PCCC is partially funded by the Western Illinois Area Agency on Aging.
The Putnam County Community Center is state, federal and locally funded by business and civic organizations, township and county governments and individuals in our community. We must raise $31,356 this fiscal year in order to meet our obligations for matching federal funds.
