The Ollek Foundation
After considerable discussion and planning, the Ollek Foundation was formed in 2017 as a 501(3)(C) non-profit charitable organization which allows for tax-deductible contributions to be received.
Our major purpose is to “help people who help people” and follow the direction of Philippians 2:4 which states,
“Look not only on your interests, but also on the interests of others.”
The Bible has several versions of this verse but each version gives clear direction that we are to be concerned about our fellow man and the difficulties that they may face and that is what The Ollek Foundation endeavors to do.
It should be noted that NONE OF THE OFFICERS AND/OR DIRECTORS OF THE OLLEK FOUNDATION RECEIVE ANY COMPENSATION so we can direct more funds to those needing help.
We have been blessed early in our formation to assist groups such as Cleaning For a Reason, a National organization dedicated to providing FREE house cleaning services for Women fighting cancer. One of our directors personally witnessed, in 2017, the outstanding service they provide. While Rich lost his wife to colon cancer, the free house cleaning they provided through their local affiliate, The Cleaning Authority in Wichita, Kansas to assist him and his wife Kelly during her struggles was truly outstanding and greatly appreciated.
Some of the organizations we have been fortunate to help include:
- Victory in the Valley
- Family Crisis Center
- Midwest Battle Buddies
- Rise Up For Youth
- Beauties and the Beast
WE ARE EXCITED TO HELP
One of the ways we have been able to help people who help people is by hosting an annual food and clothing drive for organizations in need. At the current time our schedule annually is:
- First Saturday in April—Wichita Family Crisis Center
- First Saturday in October—Victory in the Valley
We are grateful to the QUANTUM CREDIT UNION located at 6300 W. 21st North in Wichita, Kansas for allowing us to use their parking lot as a collection point for these events. Shown below are two pictures from a recent event.
