Peoria nursery seeks volunteers

Looking at this photo, how can you say no to volunteering for them? This is from an assignment to illustrate a broader story about charitable giving in 2010. This nursery – the Crisis Nursery at the Crittenton Centers – is in desperate need of volunteers. According to the nursery’s website, volunteers “assist staff and help provide emotional support for children by rocking, holding, talking, and help children in activities including art projects, story telling, singing, reading aloud, playing, eating, etc.” For the next few days, the nursery is operating with a skeleton staff since no volunteers have signed up for the holiday weekend.
