Fall colors are fading as snow again blankets the peaks of the Olympics. Our breath hangs heavy in the chill as daylight retreats. This is the time of year we share our stories, renew our friendships, celebrate our successes, forgive our trespasses and memorialize our losses. We assess our past and prepare for all that is to come.

This is the time of year when the Peninsula Daily News asks us, through the Home Fund, to recognize and embrace our compassion for others, for those whose struggles we may never know.

Contributions to the PDN’s Home Fund are more than a donation. Supporting the fund is to participate in relieving suffering and building hope. It is a personal expression of love for and understanding of our community and the human needs that exist.

This year — from Jan. 1 through Nov. 9 — a total of 3,400 people were helped by the Home Fund. Over the next few weeks we will have the opportunity to learn, through the pages of the Peninsula Daily News, how a month’s rent supports a family’s future, or how a simple bus pass can help build a career, or how help keeping the heat on made a difference.

Together, we will learn how the Home Fund is a catalyst for the emergence of hope and courage.

The Home Fund has a profound impact on many lives. The fund is frequently that bit of help that beats down hopelessness and transforms it into confidence and possibility. It is often a fragile lifeline cast out upon stormy waters.

OlyCAP values your support of the Home Fund. Our commitment to the Peninsula Daily News, those who are served and most importantly, you, is this. We will treat every Home Fund donation with respect and accountability.

We understand that choosing to contribute to any cause or activity is a deeply personal decision. OlyCAP, in partnership with the PDN, will honor your trust and confidence in our ability to help people, change lives, strengthen communities and develop human potential.

Thank you for your thoughtful support of the Home Fund.
