With Child Abuse Prevention Month (April) just a page away on the calendar, the Friends of the Yolo Crisis Nursery announce a blooming array of opportunities to lend a hand. Here are a few ideas this spring:

* Krustaceans for Kids: It’s not too late to enjoy the conclusion of crab season this Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Davis Senior Center, 646 A St. Guests will claw their way through salad, bread, pasta, crab and other goodies.

Tickets are $40 and may be purchased online at www.nurserycrabfeed.eventbrite.com. Cash and check purchases can be made by calling Liz Malinoff at 530-219-9690.

* Capital City Caper: The sixth annual Capital City Caper — a scavenger hunt by limousine —is scheduled for Sunday, April 21.

Each year, the Friends donate an instant wine cellar to be auctioned at the event. You, too can contribute to the cellar by providing a bottle of wine with a value of $20 or more. All varietals are welcome. This popular collection always inspires high bids and reaps precious funds for the nursery.

If you have a special vintage to offer, call Heidy Kellison at 530-386-2647 and she will arrange for receipt of your donation.

For more information about the Caper, visit www.capcitycaper.org.

* Mother’s Day: The nursery helps families in crisis with basic needs all year long, but on Mother’s Day, the Friends enjoy pampering clients with a special basket of goodies.

To complete the basket, each donor purchases 10 of the same personal care item. Examples are hair brushes, deodorant, chap stick, moisturizer, shampoo and sunscreen. Anything a mother could use is appreciated. The options are limitless.

Contact Linda Dullum at lindullum@sbcglobal.net for more information.

* Friends need friends: Finally, the Friends welcome new members. Call 530-386-2647 or email heidy@cwo.com to learn more.

Whether your gift is large or small, monetary or volunteer time, each of us can plant a nurturing community so that all children may grow up with healthy, loving and intact families.

— Becky Heard is president of Friends of the Yolo Crisis Nursery. Her column is published monthly.
