Firefighters, Rotary step up

We’re off to a strong start!

Signs of this community’s efforts to save our beloved Yolo Crisis Nursery are everywhere. Thousands of tax-deductible dollars have already poured in through our online fundraising campaign, “One Child, One Day,” accessible via https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/friendsofycn.

Two groups in particular, however, responded with all the vigor of an emergency rescue.

The Davis Professional Firefighters Association and the Rotary Club of Davis each committed $10,000. These funds bring us substantially closer to our goal of raising $100,000 by June 15.

As first responders, firefighters have a unique understanding of our work. Under Safe Surrender, for example, parents may safely surrender infants to fire departments within 72 hours of birth. Our local heroes align seamlessly with our child abuse prevention mission and we are proud to call them our partners.

The Noon Rotary Club of Davis has been with us from the start. In fact, their advocacy helped establish our nursery 13 years ago. Their commitment has kept countless children safe over the years.

To both groups, we express our deepest gratitude for being part of our critical response team. May others follow your leadership and help us keep the nursery’s doors open now, and in the future.
