Home Fund contributors make a difference in others’ lives

The Peninsula Home Fund is seeking contributions for its 31st annual holiday fundraising campaign through New Year’s Eve.

A little can mean a lot. The average amount given per person this year has been $143.

The annual cap for an individual is $350.

The Home Fund offers an essential bridge when things just don’t match up to allow your neighbors on the North Olympic Peninsula to remain, or become, productive members of society. It creates a safety net for Peninsula residents when there is nowhere else to turn.

The goal is “a hand up, not a handout.”

How to apply

To apply for a Peninsula Home Fund grant, contact one of the three Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP) offices:

• OlyCAP’s Port Angeles office is at 228 W. First St., Suite J (Armory Square Mall); 360-452-4726. For Port Angeles- and Sequim-area residents.

• Its Port Townsend office is at 823 Commerce Loop; 360-385-2571. For Jefferson County residents.

• The Forks office is at 421 Fifth Ave.; 360-374-6193. For West End ­residents.

Leave a message in the voicemail box at any of the three numbers, and a Home Fund caseworker will phone you back.

OlyCAP’s website: www.olycap.org; email: [email protected].

Contributions so far

A number of generous individuals and organizations have been donating money to the Peninsula Home Fund since the first of the year.

While most of the money is raised between Thanksgiving and Dec. 31, the fund itself never closes.

Donations of any amount are always welcome. Every gift makes a difference, regardless of size.

To donate, write a check to “Peninsula Home Fund” and attach it to the coupon that appears in today’s Peninsula Daily News.

Mail both items to Peninsula Home Fund, Peninsula Daily News, P.O. Box 1330, Port Angeles, WA 98362.

You can also contribute online using a credit card. Just go to www.olycap.org/peninsula-home-fund.

All contributions are IRS tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law for the year in which the check is written.

Your personal information is kept confidential. PDN does not rent, sell, give or otherwise share your address or other information with anyone or make any other use of it.

No money is deducted by the Peninsula Daily News for administration fees or any other overhead. Every penny goes to OlyCAP, which uses it to help the most vulnerable members of our community, from infants to families to seniors, taking up to 10 percent to help pay for the vital programs and services for Home Fund clients.

If you have any questions about the fund, call Publisher Terry R. Ward at 360-417-3500.
