Support the Crisis Nursery Coalition of Illinois through the Illinois Tax Check-Off Program

Tuesday, February 23, 2010
Special to

Crisis Nurseries provide free short term care for children, ages newborn through 6 years, whose families are experiencing parental stress, work/school issues, medical emergencies and/or domestic violence. Maryville Crisis Nursery is the only Crisis Nursery in the Chicago area and one of only six in the state of Illinois, who collectively make up the Crisis Nursery Coalition of Illinois (CNCOI).

Your 2009 Illinois income tax form is an effective way to support the Crisis Nursery Coalition of Illinois (and Chicago's Maryville Crisis Nursery). For the first time, the Crisis Nursery Coalition is included in the Tax Check-Off Program. All you have to do is check a box (Step 10, Schedule G, line J) and you can provide the needed support that helps families in need right now. Every penny of your donation to the Crisis Nursery Fund goes toward providing direct care to children 6 and under whose parents are in difficult situations caused by medical issues, job or work issues, parental stress or homelessness.

If only 2% of all Chicago residents donated $1 via their tax return, the Crisis Nursery would receive the funding needed to keep our door open to those families who need our service. Without the proper funding, the Chicago based Crisis Nursery will run the risk of closing their doors, leaving hundreds of families without the help that they need to survive. I hope that we can count on you to help us help your constituents.
