Yolo Crisis Nursery helps prevent child abuse every month

While April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Yolo Crisis Nursery never takes a break from this primary public health mission. Nonetheless, there are meaningful ways to acknowledge this reflective time.

First, join the Friends of the Nursery on Sunday, April 13, from 1 to 4 p.m. for Davis Odd Fellows Bingo when all proceeds will benefit the nursery.
Quoting from the Odd Fellows’ website, bingo “is a wonderful way for the community to support the many needy nonprofit organizations in Davis. Each month, Davis Odd Fellows Bingo! connects with a local organization that needs assistance. Community members, friends and family are encouraged and welcomed to come to the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge for an afternoon of fun. For as little as $12, you can sit with friends and chat or meet new people while helping people in our community.”

The lodge is at 415 Second Street in downtown Davis. The bingo hall is in the lower level. Seating is limited to the first 100 players.
April is also a time when we gather special items for our clients in preparation for Mother’s Day. Anyone can donate 10 personal care items — needs we might take for granted, but that mean a great deal to those who have so little. Things like toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, nail clippers — just the basics — will make Mother’s Day as special as it should be.
We’re also looking forward to spring cleaning by the National Charity League, a local group of mothers and daughters committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. You can help their efforts by donating items for the garden like flowers and shrubs.
And, of course, the most basic need — keeping the doors open — is a year-round effort. Your financial contributions will help ensure that this vital service can continue now and into the future.
For more information about The Friends of the Yolo Crisis Nursery or any of these ways of giving, please contact Heidy Kellison at 530-386-2647 or heidy@cwo.com
