Every year around the holiday season, people get a little busier. There are parties to attend, lots of shopping to be done, and the days just seem shorter with fewer hours of daylight. Given that Crisis Nursery’s Children’s Holiday Shop, held the first full week in December, falls during this hectic time of year, you might think filling volunteer shifts at the Shop would be difficult. Fortunately for the Nursery, and the nearly 1,000 children who shop at the store, that’s not the case.

For families fleeing domestic violence, Crisis Nursery is vital. Or maybe, you need to find an apartment, but you can't until you get a job, which you can't do until you find childcare. With no friends or family here to help with the kids, how will you even look for a job?  Will anyone hire you if you come to the interview with three children in tow? Crisis Nursery is here to help!
