Yolo Crisis Nursery: Time heals all wounds

By Becky Heard

Playtime: Warmer temperatures mean our little ones will spend more of their time outside. “Laura’s Garden” (aptly named for the nursery’s founder) is a welcoming backyard space to dig in the dirt, motor on wheels and even splash in water.

Like many well-loved toys, however, ours are weathered and tired. We need a few popular items and welcome donations. Here’s the list: water play table, art easel, yard of sand and toys to be pushed or ridden. We are also in constant need of underwear for boys and girls, sizes 2T-5.

Please contact the nursery directly to arrange for donations at 530-758-6680.

Tee time: Volunteers wanted!

Each fall, our host agency, EMQ FamiliesFirst, sponsors a golf tournament to raise funds to support the nursery, which is 100 percent reliant on private funding. This year’s “Hole Lotta Love” will take place on Friday, Oct. 11, at Teal Bend Golf Course in Sacramento.

Weekdays can be challenging to garner enough volunteers, so this year, we’re asking early. If you’re willing to 1) have a lot of fun and 2) give meaningfully to sustain our services, please contact Heidy Kellison at 530-386-2647 or heidy@cwo.com. Volunteers are needed from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and any commitment of time is welcome — typically, three- to four-hour blocks.

A great time: … was had by all at our first “Krustaceans for Kids,” a crab feed sponsored by the Friends of the YCN. We are deeply grateful to the following organizations and businesses who contributed to this outstanding event:

Davis Chamber of Commerce, Davis Waste Removal, University Honda, Mason McDuffie Mortgage Corp., Michael O’Brien and Lisa Yamauchi, Nugget Market, 3rd Street Jeweler, A Grand Affair, Active Family and Sports Chiropractic, Balance Pointe Pilates, Christina Buechler, Beyond the Garden Gate, Black Bear Diner, Brooks Painting, Caffé Italia, Mike Costello, Crème de la Crème, Cut-N-Loose, Davis Ace Hardware, Davis Home Trends, Linda Dullum, Lynn Evert, Fit House Davis, Fleet Feet Sports, Golfland Sunsplash, Hair Design by Kellie, Becky Heard and Heaven’s Best Carpet Cleaning.

Also, John Natsoulas Gallery, Heidy and Peter Kellison, Charla Kordana, John Lescroart, Let Them Eat Cake, Lutheran Church Quilt Group, M3 Design Photography, Ed Maeda, Candace and Katheryn Macpherson, Liz Malinoff, Dina McHugh, Mother & Baby Source, nestware, Pinkadot, Pat Price, Raven’s Nest Design, Heather Sleuter, Sue Roberts Massage, Sacramento Kings, Sacramento Zoo, Don Saylor, Spa Central, Carolyn Stiver, Strelitzia Flower Company, Lynnette Temple, Ultra Clean Pool Service, Dan Wolk and Yoloberry Yogurt.

A very special thanks to the National Charity League’s Davis Chapter for their top-notch volunteer service; John Gerlich for art, graphics and signage; First Northern Bank for auction check-out services; and Martha Bernauer, who skillfully coordinated our kitchen.

No event is successful without coordination. One of our Friends, Sherry Richter, pulled it all together and we are grateful for her heart and dedication.

Finally, we thank each and every guest who clawed their way through a sold-out evening. With your support, we look forward to an even bigger and better crab feed next year.
