How to apply, how to donate for Peninsula Home Fund

The Peninsula Home Fund is available year-round to provide assistance to residents in Clallam and Jefferson counties when times are tough.

It is entirely fueled by donations, a home-grown effort by neighbors to help neighbors.

Funds are dispersed by Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP).

To apply for help, fill out an online inquiry.

The “Ask for General Assistance” button at www.olycap.org will take you to the request form, or you can go directly to olycap.formstack.com/forms/general_inquiry.

If you are unable to access the internet, you may call OlyCAP offices in Port Angeles — 360-452-4726 — or Port Townsend — 360-385-2571, regardless of which county you reside in, and the front desk staff will fill it out on your behalf over the phone.

Physical offices remain closed to the public due to COVID-19 health concerns, but services are available.

Cherish Cronmiller, OlyCAP’s executive director, oversees disbursements from the Peninsula Home Fund.

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

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 olycap.org/ donations.

From children’s pennies to checks for thousands of dollars, the generosity of Peninsula Daily News readers makes a positive difference.

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