PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula recently received a donation under Jig & Lure Fish Co. restaurant’s no-tip policy.
The check for $4,149.86 represents the largest show of support for the program from the community, according to a news release.
Recently, the restaurant partnered with United Way of Clallam County to help manage the growing program, which since it started in April has raised more than $20,000 for causes ranging from homelessness prevention, support for victims of domestic violence, free primary care medicine and support for education and support services for youths and individuals with developmental disabilities.
The employees do not accept tips at the restaurant and instead ask customers to donate for local causes, with one nonprofit partner each month being the recipient of the donations.
For November, the Port Angeles Regional Food Bank is the partner of the month, and Habitat for Humanity of Clallam County is slated for December.

This event is intended to help those who are otherwise unable to financially access an attorney but is open to all those who show up.
Attorney volunteers will be available from noon until 3 p.m. to answer legal questions, to direct people to local services that might be able to assist them and to explain the legal process to them.
Volunteers will answer questions regarding family law, tenant/landlord, public assistance, estate, bankruptcy, employment and creditor issues.
It is anticipated demand for this clinic will be high, so it is recommended that attendees arrive on time to ensure being seen by an attorney.
