Supporting your community goes beyond shopping locally. It involves rolling up your sleeves, pitching in, or opening your doors to a good cause.
At Olive This!, we stand behind two important causes in our community:
The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research
The Paula Takacs Foundation for Sarcoma Research was formed to raise both awareness as well as funds for Sarcoma research. Because sarcomas only represent approximately 1% of adult and 15% of childhood cancers, they lack the government funding that other cancers often receive.

The Girl Scouts Hornets Nest Council.
The Girl Scouts, Hornets’ Nest Council received its first charter from Girl Scouts of the USA in 1935. Today, the council serves more than 15,000 with over 5,000 volunteers in eight counties in North and South Carolina: Anson, Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Rowan, Stanly, Union and York (SC). Girl Scout Mission Statement: Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place.
