Every Christmas season Olive Crest launches their Be the Miracle campaign. Many children who Olive Crest supports have never experienced the joy of the season or had a Christmas tree, let alone had a loving home or experienced opening gifts on Christmas morning. At Olive Crest, we believe everyone can do something to make Christmas a little more miraculous for these children.
This past Christmas season, along with community members, donors, and volunteers, we were able to bring joy to children and families.
All in all, Olive Crest partnered with 97 churches, 123 corporations and organizations, and 549 volunteers to provide 18,400 gifts to children and families. Gifts were given at 59 events across the Western United States, totaling 6,500 hours from volunteers who worked diligently to make sure Christmas was magical for everyone. Without the support of our donors and volunteers we would not have been able to bring the joy of the season to the children, teens, and families served at Olive Crest!
