Michael Sullivan & Associates and Olive Crest: A New Partnership to Help Kids in Need

Olive Crest started in 1973 when Dr. Donald and Lois Verleur took in four teenage girls and opened their first home for children in Orange County, CA. Inspired by the olive tree in the front yard and the idea of a family crest, Olive Crest, a name symbolizing “peace family,” was born.

Olive Crest has transformed the lives of over 70,000 abused and neglected children. They work tirelessly to meet the individual needs of kids in crisis by providing safe homes, counseling, and education for both youth and parents.

Our fist contribution to Olive Crest was creating and donating Easter Baskets with the help from our awesome Office Supervisors and caring MS&A employees! We donated 75 Easter Baskets and crafting supplies for children of all ages! We are sure the SMILES on the children’s faces were priceless!

May is “Stuff a Suitcase” month at Olive Crest. We will be donating 40-50 suitcases this month. For more information about Olive Crest please visit
