The Peninsula Home Fund is the Peninsula Daily News’ "hand up, not a handout" community assistance program.

Now in its 26th year, the Peninsula Home Fund is a safety net for children, teens, families and the elderly in Jefferson and Clallam counties — from Forks to Port Townsend, Quilcene and Brinnon to LaPush — when they face emergency situations and can’t find help elsewhere.

The Home Fund was created by the Peninsula Daily News to supplement the good work of public and private social service agencies — in particular, we want to make sure no one falls through the cracks during winter, the most demanding time of the year.

Every penny collected goes to nonprofit OlyCAP — Olympic Community Action Programs, the No. 1 emergency care agency on the North Olympic Peninsula — which uses the money for hot meals for seniors, warm winter coats for children, home repairs for the low income, needed prescription drugs, dental work, safe, drug-free temporary housing, eyeglasses — the list goes on and on.

A record-breaking $268,137 was contributed to the Home Fund in 2012 — which smashed the old record set on Dec. 31, 2011, of $254,593

More than 3,200 individuals, couples and families (many of them with children) — your neighbors — were helped in 2013 by the Home Fund.

Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used with money from churches, service clubs and other donors, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contributions.

All Home Fund contributions are fully IRS tax-deductible for the yearly period in which a check is written. And all donors receive a receipt by mail. (The fund's IRS number, under the auspices of OlyCAP, is 91-0814319.)

It is because of generous people like you that the North Olympic Peninsula is such a great place to live.

Thank you for being here — and for being such a good neighbor.
