We’re finishing our Week of Cheer with a recap of our team’s involvement with Olive Crest, an organization that transforms the lives of at-risk children through the healing power of family. More than 40 years since Olive Crest’s inception, they have become a leader in the prevention and treatment of child abuse, serving nearly 3,000 children and families each day. This Holiday Season we decided to partner with Olive Crest, to help them provide a warm holiday meal for families in need.

How Brandify Helped

We connected with Shelley Ryan - Event Coordinator at Olive Crest, to support their annual canned food drive. Shelley discussed the items receiving families were in need of and once we shared those items with the rest of the Brandify Team, we were thrilled with the response. Over the course of a week we had team members from every department donate a truck load (literally) of food items.

But we didn’t stop there. Brandify’s Founder and CEO, Manish Patel, decided to match the teams donations.  After Shelly dropped off the initial donated items, she returned to Brandify Headquarters and our team took her on a shopping spree to find more items.

“I want to thank you all so much for the wonderful donations of food. We were able to help every family on our list and the list was much larger than last year. Our families and staff were so excited - staff to give, and families to receive. All of this because of all of you!” - Shelley Ryan, Event  Coordinator at Olive Crest

Overall our team was able to donate enough food items to make an 61 baskets for families this holiday season - and we must say, we feel pretty good about that. To learn more about Olive Crest, and how you can get involved click on the link below.
