This holiday season the Putnam Plastics family held a 50/50 raffle to benefit both an employee and a charity. A total of $667 was raised through raffle ticket sales. The winner of the raffle, Rick Lupien, took home 50% of the earnings while the other half will be donated to the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. The Sandy Hook School Support Fund "provides support services to the families and community that has been affected."
