Donation matching challenge offered for Sequim school supplies

Peninsula Daily News

SEQUIM — Oscar Lopez, owner of Oscar Lopez Painting Co. of Sequim, is challenging other businesses to match his donation of up to $500 for the purchase of backpacks and school supplies for students in need.

Lopez's wife, Jennifer Lopez, teaches fourth grade at Greywolf Elementary School in Carlsborg.

School supplies will be distributed during the Back to School Fair at the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula at 400 W. Fir St. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

Supplies were donated during a Stuff the Bus event Aug. 2 in the Walmart parking lot.

Shoppers were invited to purchase school supplies and drop them into cardboard containers.

Cash donations also have been received and are being used to buy items to fill in what is still needed.

Donations of school supplies can be dropped off at the school district office at 503 N. Sequim Ave. or at the Sequim Boys & Girls Club.

Those interested in making a donation can phone Cynthia Martin, president of Parenting Matters Foundation, at 360-681-2250.
