A PSA, also known as a public service announcement, is a free announcement which promotes programs, activities, or services of non-profit organizations or federal, state, and local government serving community interests.
PSAs came into being with the entry of the United States into World War II. Radio broadcasters and advertising agencies offered their skills and facilities toward the war effort and established the War Advertising Council which became the official homefront arm of the Office of War Information. Print, outdoor advertising and especially radio became the carriers of such messages as "Loose lips sink ships," "Keep 'em Rolling" and a variety of announcements encouraging the purchase of War Bonds.
PSA's must be written in ten lines or less and sent at least two weeks prior to the event.. No attachments, no flyers please. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to submit your PSA.

Establishing paternity is a process where an unmarried biological father becomes the legal father of his child. Both parents can voluntarily acknowledge paternity while at the hospital when their child is born by completing a Voluntary Paternity Acknowledgment. Both parents deserve an opportunity to enjoy and grow in the parent-child relationship. A father has the right to know his child and contribute to the success of the child's future. Paternity helps children have a relationship with both parents, gain the security of knowing that their father cares, have knowledge of both families' medical histories, achieve better outcomes, decrease the likelihood of high-risk behavior, have access to health insurance or benefits such as Social Security or inheritance. SCPOP also offers a low-cost paternity test if there is any question about a child's parentage. Contact the SC Parenting Opportunity Program at 1-866-914-8786 for information. What a difference a Dad makes!
