Fill The Crib

March 25, 2011 Updated Apr 1, 2014 at 5:05 AM CDT

This is a program started and sponsored by WEEK/WAOE/WHOI to help families in central Illinois.  This year, we teamed up with Crittenton Centers in Peoria. We are specifically working with The Crisis Nursery which is marking its 31st anniversary in the community. The nursery is a 24/7 emergency daycare service for children 0 to 6 years old. A child can be dropped off at anytime, for any reason and the care provided is free.

You can drop off the following items from April 1-30.
