Easter Basket and Gift Card Drive (Orange County)

Date(s) - 02/26/2019 - 04/12/2019
8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Did you know some children have gone their whole lives without celebrating the joy of Easter? You can make a big difference for kids and families this spring by helping provide a pre-filled Easter basket or gift card for Olive Crest children and teens. We can only do it with the support of compassionate donors like you!

Provide an Easter basket for Olive Crest kids.

Every year our goal is to give an Easter Basket to every Olive Crest child. You can help us by dropping off a pre-filled Easter basket in one of the following categories:

  • Boy or girl, ages 0-6
  • Boy or girl, ages 7-12
  • Boy or girl, ages 13+ (our greatest need)

Basket ideas could include:

  • Themed baskets for kids, such as Star Wars, princesses, or super heroes.
  • Baskets for teens, including electronics, hygiene products, and school supplies.
  • Easter greeting cards with personalized messages for our children and youth.

Please make sure to label all baskets with the age and gender of the children who will receive them.

Pre-filled baskets can be dropped off at Olive Crest before April 12 between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. at 2130 East Fourth Street, Suite 200, in Santa Ana.


Provide gift cards for children and teens.

Gift cards are important tools in caring for Olive Crest children and young adults. There are so many basic needs that a gift card can provide for kids and at-risk families. Preferred stores are:

  • Walmart
  • Smart & Final
  • Ulta, MAC, Sephora
  • Old Navy, H&M, Kohl’s
  • Payless, Shoe City

Please make sure all gift cards are handed directly to Olive Crest staff when donated, not included in another gift.

Or Become a Monthly Donor!

You can also become a member of our Kids at Heart monthly giving team. A donation of just $7.31 is all it takes to provide one child a day of safety in a loving home. Find out more about how to support kids on a monthly basis at www.olivecrest.org/kidsatheart.
