Olympic Steel Helps Grant Max’s “Getaway Cruise” Wish


October 07, 2014

Olympic Steel, a national metals service center, helped 11-year-old Max enjoy a Nickelodeon cruise aboard the Norwegian Getaway as part of his wish experience with Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina earlier this month.  A wish party will be held on Thursday, October 9 to honor the Durham County native who has leukemia.  

Employees from Olympic Steel’s Siler City location held several fundraising events during the month of July to help fund Max’s wish.  Events included corn hole tournaments, yard sales, car washes and coin drives among other activities that helped fund Oliver’s wish.  A recognized supporter of Make-A-Wish® since 2004 through their corporate Working for Wishes campaign, Olympic Steel has donated more than $38,000 to Make-A-Wish Eastern North Carolina to grant local wishes.

Founded in 1954, Olympic Steel is a leading U.S. metals service center focused on the direct sale and distribution of large volumes of processed carbon, coated and stainless flat-rolled sheet, coil and plate steel and aluminum products.  Its Siler City, NC location supplies the market’s leading manufacturers of construction equipment and armored vehicles.  The products supplied range from highly complex weld assemblies, including armored vehicle kits and weldments, to parts for logging and extendable trailers, waste recycling baler components, fabricated off-road construction products, and heavy construction beam welding.  Visit for additional information.
