5th Annual "Krustaceans for Kids" Crab Feed
For the Yolo Crisis Nursery, this is the event of the year! So much crab, so much pasta and salad, so much fun!
Save the date for the 2017 event: It will be March 17 at the Woodland Community and Senior Center, a beautiful and spacious facility on East Street on the southern edge of town.
Tickets and sponsorships will be available beginning in January.
Every year, the Nursery participates in the national Giving Tuesday. This year, it’s Nov. 29.
Always the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, it’s a day to give back after the three big shopping days: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday.
This is a virtual event, driven by social media: #GivingTuesday. Donations are all online, to individual nonprofits’ own donation web pages.
With your contribution by credit card, you’ll join thousands of people around the country who will enter the Season of Giving with a gift that helps the less fortunate among us.
Our local newspaper, the Davis Enterprise, generously publishes a column once a month about our activities at the Nursery. Catch up on past columns below:
