The Black Bear Diner Sequim, 1471 E Washington St., seeks donations for the Sequim Food Bank, which will be converted into gift cards for the restaurant.
Staff created a GoFundMe page where the community can donate at www.gofundme.com/f/black-bear-diner-donates-to-sequim-food-bank.
Donations are converted to $25 gift cards and given to the Sequim Food Bank for distribution.
Like many Sequim restaurants, the diner is open only for take-out now, but donations also help keep some staff employed, said General Manager Linda Donaghay.
“We wanted a way to bring a little joy to those in need with a comforting Black Bear Diner take-out meal,” she said.
Black Bear Diner owner Bret Wirta said they are always looking for ways to support the community and the food bank was a perfect fit.
Andra Smith, executive director of the Sequim Food Bank, said they are grateful for the support of our community and the Black Bear Diner’s innovative fundraiser.
