Helping others

art8028


You can help our local crisis nursery, which opens its doors to parents at risk for abuse or who are in crisis and need emergency childcare, by placing a donation under the decorated Beanie Baby Bears tree in the lobby at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library. As a gift back to you, the nursery invites you to take a bear from the tree to take home. A few suggestions for donations are: diapers, size 4 and 5; canned vegetables, liquid Lysol; toilet paper; laundry detergent; Kleenex; and copy paper. Another way to help out the nursery is to bring your kids to its Children’s Holiday Store Nov. 27-30 so they can shop for gifts for the family. The store is open Tuesday through Friday from 4-8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Saturday from 12-5 p.m. at The Yard Shopping Center, 1650 W. Wabash Ave, Suite F.
