As the kids return to school and the temperatures start to drop, the Crisis Nursery starts to think of the holidays! The Nursery team never forgets the times when children have shared that Santa forgot them or that Santa doesn’t know how to find them or even worse that Santa must think they are bad since he didn’t come. We know that all children deserve the magic of the Holidays and that, with your help, we can work together to make it happen!

You and your family, friends and colleagues can choose to help children and families in need. There are three different ways in which you may help:

  1. Sponsor a Family You will be “matched” with a Crisis Nursery family. Please indicate on the enclosed response form how many families you would like to sponsor and how many children aged 0-12 per family you are able to assist. Please note that when sponsoring a child it is helpful, but not required, to include an outfit of clothing, socks, underwear/diapers, a pair of new shoes, and 2-3 new toys and books. The parents often list household needs such as food, cleaning supplies, rent assistance, etc. with which you may also choose to assist. This is not required, but it is greatly appreciated. Most parents do not list a wish for themselves. However, a bathrobe, lotions, etc. would be a nice surprise.
