The Peninsula Home Fund never closes.
It can accept donations all year long.
Donations provide money for Olympic Community Action Programs (OlyCAP) case workers to create an essential bridge for residents of Clallam and Jefferson counties when things just don’t match up.
The Home Fund is not a welfare program. Money is used to give families and individuals from Port Townsend to Forks, from Quilcene and Brinnon to Sequim, Joyce and La Push “a hand up, not a handout” to get through an emergency situation.
All contributions are federally tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law for the year in which the check is written.
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.
The best way to request assistance from the Peninsula Home Fund is to fill out an online 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.
