U.S. Bank’s Foundation granted Sequim Community Aid $1,500 to help restore some services for those in need within Sequim School District boundaries. Community Aid helps pay rent/mortgages, utilities and bus/ferry fares for job interviews, doctor appointments and transportation to other agencies. Earlier this year, Community Aid organizers had to limit donations to clients because of an increase in need.
