In need of a last-minute gift? Turn to your local merchants by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

With the holiday season in full swing, many people are feeling pressure to wrap up their holiday shopping, while others are just starting to think about their shopping lists. Americans are in the process of spending a large portion of their annual shopping budget between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31, and merchants across the North Olympic Peninsula are well stocked and ready for last-minute holiday shoppers. Numerous studies have shown that if those dollars are shifted to locally owned, independent businesses, they’ll generate two to three times as much economic activity in area communities than if that money had been spent at a national chain. Across North America, that could mean billions of dollars of local economic impact. If Peninsula residents shifted their purchase of cards, gifts, flowers and other holiday items to locally owned businesses, the monetary impact would add up quickly, according to area retail and tourism experts. >> SHOP LOCAL continued on Page 13

Expert advice: Gift exchange dos and don’ts by METROCREATIVE GRAPHICS

Preparations for Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations are underway. That means neighborhoods, buildings and stores are awash in holiday splendor. Social schedules will be full, and people everywhere will shuffle to complete their holiday shopping. Grab bags are a staple of this season of giving, and the following are a few dos and don’ts to ensure participation in gift exchanges is fun and friendly for all involved.

DO SET A GIFT AMOUNT LIMIT

Holiday grab bags are more about having fun and exchanging a little something with friends and family members than walking away with amazing prizes. Establish a spending limit so everyone receives a gift of roughly the same value and no one feels slighted or left out.

Experiment with your own variations to make gift exchanges more fun.

KEEP YOUR GIFT A SECRET

If you are doing a gift swap, the idea is to keep things as secretive as possible so as not to sway the selection of presents.

DO SELECT A UNISEX GIFT

For gift swaps, make sure your gift is unisex unless you know specifically that only men or women will be opening the presents. Select items that will appeal to both genders. Food, gift cards, music or home staples make great grab bag gifts.

DON’T REGIFT ITEMS TO USE AS GRAB BAG PICKS

Should the person who gave you the gift participate in the grab bag, he or she can trace that gift back to you and might be offended.

DON’T EXCEED THE SPENDING LIMIT

It can be tempting to spend more to make your gift appear more impressive. But overspending defeats the purpose of the gift exchange. Grab bags typically are anonymous, so being overly generous will not win you any style points.

DO EXPLAIN THE RULES

DO MAKE IT A GAME

Tossing gifts in a bag only to have others reach in and grab one is certainly effective. But the concept can be even more fun if you make a game out of it. Try passing wrapped gifts around in a circle to a holiday song. When the music stops, the gift you are holding is the one you open.

Make sure everyone is aware that there will be a grab bag gift exchange, as there needs to be an equal number of gifts to participants so everyone gets a treat. Hosts may want to have a few extra wrapped gifts around just in case someone forgets to bring their contribution. Gift exchanges in the form of grab bags, auctions, swaps and other games make for fun additions to holiday festivities. They also can be a part of any family or friends gathering to add excitement and entertainment to the occasion.

That special tree: Peninsula residents have last-minute U-cut options for Christmas by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

PORT ANGELES — One family will vacuum a lot of pine needles this winter. Ann Johnson, who owns and operates Lazy J Tree Farm with her husband, Steve Johnson, said a single family hauled off seven Christmas trees on Nov. 24, the farm’s opening day of the season. Lazy J, a fourth-generation farm at 225 Gehrke Road, is among the places that offer trees visitors can cut themselves. The farm offers daily hours from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. until Christmas Day for North Olympic Peninsula residents or visitors to cut down their own trees. Customers pay $7.40 per foot of tree, unless they choose a bargain tree, which varies from $20 to $30. The tree varieties include primarily Nordmann fir, but also noble fir, Douglas fir, Turkish fir, grand fir and a few sequoias, ranging from 5-feet to 12-feet tall, owner Steve Johnson said. Ann Johnson estimated the farm holds roughly 6,000 trees (at least more than a simple count can capture). Customers may cut their own with a farm-provided saw, or bring a saw of choice. After braving the elements on the hunt for the perfect tree, visitors can recoup alongside the fire pit with a cup of hot apple cider. The farm also sells wreaths, greenery, apples, Asian pears, cherries, potatoes, garlic, honey and rhubarb, as well as Christmas gifts. Lazy J invites customers back after Christmas. Once

Whitehead’s Auto Parts, Inc. Expanded bigger and better to serve your needs!

Deer Park Tree Farm, 4227 Deer Park Road, will sell trees to repeat customers this winter from dawn to dusk every day, owner Ken Nattinger said. “I’m holding my own right now with repeat customers,” said Nattinger, who also opened only to regulars last year due to a limited stock of trees. “When I get too many trees [in future years], then I might have a reopening — a grand reopening.” Nattinger’s estimated 70 trees represent Nordmann fir, Douglas fir, noble fir, grand fir, pine, Scotch pine and white pine. All trees cost $7 per foot, though not to exceed $50, Nattinger said.

OLYMPIC NATIONAL FOREST

Adventurous tree seekers can opt for a permit to fetch their own from the Olympic National Forest through Saturday, Dec. 23. Permits, good for one U-cut tree, cost $5 each unless you’re in the fourth grade. As part of the Every Kid in a Park Initiative, fourth-grade students are eligible for a free tree permit with a valid paper voucher printed from www.everykidinapark.gov. Fourth-grader permits are not available at the Hoodsport office or Sequim Visitor Information Center or during weekend hours in Quilcene. Mail order requests for permits are no longer accepted. Permits are available at the following Olympic Peninsula locations and hours, except for holidays, according to a news release, which recommends visitors phone to confirm hours.

‘Hand up, not a handout’ Peninsula Home Fund offers a chance to help neighbors in need by PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Sometimes it’s the little things that loom the largest. Your budget’s tight, but you’re making it — barely — and then an unexpected car repair leaves you short on the rent. You’re proud of making your available cash stretch to cover school clothes and supplies for your children — and then one loses the glasses that are essential for him to read and keep up with schoolwork. You got that job — but now you lack appropriate work clothes or a bus pass to get to work. What do you do? On the North Olympic Peninsula, generous residents create a safety net for their neighbors, donating what they can to the Peninsula Daily News’ “hand up, not a handout” Peninsula Home Fund. Donations collected by the PDN benefit Olympic

Community Action Programs (OlyCAP), the No. 1 emergency-care agency in Clallam and Jefferson counties, where case workers screen applicants and carefully distribute the funds. The annual campaign started Thanksgiving Day and will include weekly feature stories in the PDN about area residents who have been helped by the Peninsula Home Fund, donor contribution lists and more. Donors in Clallam and Jefferson counties — 1,093 households or groups — contributed $264,486 to the Peninsula Home Fund during the 2016 campaign. The funds have allowed OlyCAP to help thousands of area residents this year with a variety of needs that otherwise might have not been met. All of the donors join the PDN in delivering hope to thousands of individuals and families, many with young children, who suddenly face an emergency situation and can’t find help elsewhere.

<< HOME FUND continued from Page 18

• No money is deducted by the Peninsula Daily News for administration fees or any other overhead. Every penny goes to OlyCAP — nonprofit Olympic Community Action Programs. The money goes to help the most vulnerable members of our community, from infants to families to seniors. Please note: Due to substantial community demands, the loss of grants from recent cuts in government funding and the status of the economy, OlyCAP was permitted to use 10 percent — 10 cents of every dollar donated — to pay for the vital programs and services for Home Fund clients. This standing began in 2012 and continues today. OlyCAP has kept it in the area of 8 percent to 10 percent, a fraction of the average overhead of other nonprofits. • 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. Assistance, which usually averages less than $100, is limited to one time in a 12-month period. The average amount of help this year has been $62 per person and $212 per household. The fund has served 1,022 households and 3,496 individuals since Jan. 1.

Make it a

Money from the fund is used for hot meals for seniors in Jefferson and Clallam counties; warm winter coats for kids; home repairs for a low-income family; needed prescription drugs; dental work; help with evictions and deposits for moving into permanent housing; eyeglasses — the list goes on and on. All instances of help are designed to get an individual or family through a crisis — and back to self-sufficiency. Home Fund case managers often work with each individual or family to develop a plan to become financially stable — and avoid a recurrence of the emergency that prompted aid from the fund. As needed, Peninsula Home Fund contributions are often used in conjunction with money from churches, service clubs and other donors, enabling OlyCAP to stretch the value of the contribution. The goal again: “a hand up, not a handout.” • 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 information with anyone or make any other use of it. Since its beginning, the fund has relied on the support of Jefferson and Clallam county residents. As of Nov. 8, $238,084 has been spent for Home Fund grants. And as we move into winter, the toughest period of the year, all of the remaining money — $26,402 — is expected to be spent by mid-January.

HOW TO APPLY To apply for a Peninsula Home Fund grant, contact one of the three 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 voice mail message at any of the three numbers, and a Home Fund caseworker will phone you back. OlyCAP’s website: www.olycap.org; email: action@ olycap.org. Dale Wilson, OlyCAP’s executive director, oversees disbursements from the Peninsula Home Fund.
