Your support of Olive Crest helps children and families in so many ways. A woman named Grace came to us to find out more about our free tutoring program. She had just learned that her daughter, Nathalie, was going to be placed in a special education class on the other side of town. Grace fought hard to have Nathalie placed in a school closer to home — and Nathalie is now doing better than ever in a nearby school. She comes to Olive Crest every day for tutoring, gets along well with the other students, and helps them when she can.
On her birthday, an organization called Goodness Cakes provided her with a beautiful and delicious cake. She was so excited. Later that evening, we received an email from Grace thanking us for everything we have done for Nathalie and letting us know that she had just won an award for “Most Improved in Math.”
She said, “I just wanted to share Nathalie’s success with all of you…The care and kindness you give to each family makes the world a better place for each and every one of us.”
These words belong to caring friends like you. Thank you for helping kids like Nathalie. We can’t wait to see what she does next.
