Call it a story of neighbors helping neighbors. Home Instead of Clallam & Jefferson Counties picked the Sequim Wheelers Adaptive Bike Program in the annual Home Instead Charities GIVE65 fundraising program for nonprofits in July, resulting in a donation of more than $7,800, Sequim Wheelers founder/president Nicole Lepping said earlier this month.
To qualify, Sequim Wheelers representatives had to go through a series of paperwork and vetting process and demonstrate that they provide services and benefits to seniors in the community, said Pam Scott, a home care consultant with Home Instead.
“Many of the residents in our local long term care communities have been able to participate in this wonderful program,” Scott said.
Overall, Home Instead Charities this year is providing $150,000 in matching grants.
