Southern California Edison Employees Cook Off to Support At-Risk Kids
Olive Crest in Los Angeles Community Involvement Coordinator Nick King discusses the Fall Fest event with employees at Southern California Edison.
Each year, the Fall Festival at Olive Crest in Los Angeles helps children and families celebrate Halloween. During the time of year when kids and teens often go to extravagant events, parties, and theme parks, this festival (of games, prizes, and family-friendly entertainment) allows Olive Crest families to make special memories in a safe environment and without a financial burden.
This fall, about 100 Southern California Edison (Compton) employees showed up for an epic company cook-off to help make it all possible (along with Olive Crest staff and volunteers). It all started when Luis Ortiz, a Planning Supervisor at SCE, began planning their yearly cook-off event. After researching local organizations to support through the event, he felt Olive Crest was a perfect match. And the rest, they say, is history!
We are so grateful for Southern California Edison and their staff for helping Olive Crest surpass its $800 goal and raise $1,220 through one great cook-off meal.
Everyone truly can do something to help at-risk kids…even while enjoying a good meal.
