This past Saturday the Renegades helped at the Stuff the Bus Fundraiser. This charity event supports the Maryville Crisis Children’s Nursery. The nursery is looking for various children’s items like diapers, formula, etc. The Renegades families stepped up with donations and assisted with coordination at the event.
The Maryville Crisis Nursery is a vital and innovative program that provides free short-term care for parents in distress and experiencing a crisis. The Crisis Nursery protects their children, birth to age six, from abuse, neglect or trauma.
Children receive round-the-clock child care for up to 72 hours for each stay. This safe and nurturing environment is designed to protect them from harmful experiences and the damaging effects of trauma. Issues that bring families to the Maryville Crisis Nursery include unemployment, parental illness or hospitalization, poverty, and homelessness.
The Crisis Nursery is located at 6650 W. Irving Park in Chicago. Parents can call the 24-Hour Crisis Helpline, 773-205-3637, to avail of services.
