Angels MLB, Safe at Home partners work to end child abuse

Second annual campaign exceeds expected donations

Ahead of the Sept. 26 game between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Seattle Mariners, three organizations had already done a lot of work toward making sure children are “Safe at Home.”

Before the first pitch of the game was thrown out, Lou Stremick, president and CEO, and Sam Stremick, vice president of sales and marketing, of Stremicks Heritage Organic Milk, presented a $36,550 check in support of Olive Crest, an organization that works to provide safe and loving homes, preventing child abuse and treating and educating at-risk children. Established in 1973, Olive Crest has helped more than 60,000 children throughout California, Nevada and the Pacific Northwest.

The check, presented to Tom Zeigler, chairman of Olive Crests’ Board of Directors and Tim Bauer, executive director of development for Olive Crest, marked the end of a second season-long partnership between Stremicks Heritage Organic Milk, Angels Baseball and Olive Crest. Stremicks Heritage Organic Milk pledged to donate $50 to Olive Crest every time an Angels team member crossed home plate during the 2012 season.

“We recognize the importance of family and that healthy lifestyles start at home with proper nutrition, care and nurturing,” Lou Stremick said. “That’s why we are proud to stand with Angels Baseball and Olive Crest to strike out child abuse.”
