Established in 1998, the Friends of the Crisis Nurseries group is dedicated to the financial security of (and community support for) our Crisis Nursery
. Its members have volunteered countless hours to ensure a safe haven for infants and children up to age five whose parents/caregivers are experiencing a crisis. The members of the Friends of the Crisis Nurseries work to raise funds, increase awareness, and bring new volunteers to the Crisis Nursery.
The Friends have two primary functions:
Sustaining the Crisis Nursery through:
- Membership dues
- Special events such as the American Girl Fashion Show and Viva L’Auto
Raising public awareness for the Crisis Nursery through:
- Publication of the Nursery News
- Community outreach
- Coordination of the Friends speakers bureau
Recognizing that grandmothers have so many gifts to give — time, love, understanding — Friends of the Crisis Nurseries offers a very special category of membership. Twice a year, Gifting Grandmas gather for a fundraising event which typically includes a high profile, themed luncheon. If you want to impact the lives of children in our community, this membership is a great way to do it! To help ensure the financial security of the Crisis Nursery, Gifting Grandmas members pledge $200 per year or more, submitted on a schedule determined by each member.
