Nancy Kam, a preschool teacher at the Yolo Crisis Nursery, received the Rotary Club of Davis’ first “Have a Heart for Children” award at the club’s recent Big Night fundraiser. The annual dinner has raised more than $300,000 for child abuse prevention programs over the past 12 years.

Kam, an early childhood education specialist and retired nurse, has been “the backbone” of the nursery for more than 11 years, said Judy Wolf, who chairs Rotary’s Child Abuse Prevention Program committee.

Kam is “loving,” “calm” and “able to bring out the best in the children in her care,” Wolf said.

“The children look for her and want to be with her when she is at the nursery,” Kam’s nominator wrote. ” She lights up the faces of the children and they just know she is a safe, loving person.”

Rotary also presented grant awards totaling $15,000 to three local agencies at the Big Night event on Feb. 4 at the El Macero Country Club:

* $5,000 to the Multi-Disciplinary Interview Center, for its first-responder training program;

* $5,000 to the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Center, to provide a child advocate responsible for the children’s program at the shelter; and

* $5,000 to the Yolo Crisis Nursery, which provides short-term emergency care for families in crisis.

Rotary also provides $10,000 in annual support for a part-time child abuse prevention coordinator for Yolo County, a position held by Kalyca Seabrook.
