How You Can Help


Capital Campaign Donors Recognized

edited_IMG_0274_b_300Treasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery recognized the first five couples or organizations donating $1,000 to its capital campaign, at the Ontario Chamber of Commerce forum. From left are Judy Cordeniz, representing Lifeways Behavioral Health; Margaret Hicks, who also represented her late husband, Alvin Hicks; Mary Danilson, representing the Little Red House Volunteers; and Barbara and Dwight Olson. Unable to attend were Dr. Gus and Teddy Tanaka. April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and TVCRN’s mission is to prevent child abuse and neglect by strengthening struggling families. Executive Director Kathie Collins noted that the artwork, created by Tammy Kinney of Ontario, and featuring donors’ names, will be framed once the color scheme for the interior of the new building is chosen.

2015 Relief Run Color Blast Success

Another successful Relief Run Color Blast is behind us. The 2015 event featured about 200 participants – and about 75 pounds worth of color! More importantly, we raised $8,000 (net) to help support Relief Nursery services to struggling families. This event could not have happened if it weren’t for the leadership of volunteer board members Michelle McKay, Cali Burzota, and Raeshelle Meyer. We can never thank our sponsors and participants enough – they put the FUN in fundraiser!

Check out our Color Blast photo gallery and like our newly created Facebook page. We’ll see you on April 16, 2016. (And, word is next year we’ll give away packets of color to random runners AND award prizes for best team costumes.)

Scholarship Awarded to Darylyn Capps

Darrlyn_CappsTreasure Valley Children’s Relief Nursery is committed to community partnerships and, according to executive director Kathie Collins (right), enjoys a great relationship with Treasure Valley Community College’s nursing program. TVCRN wrote a grant to the Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center for $500 which would be passed on to a TVCC Nursing student with an interest in pediatrics. The student would then serve a term as an intern in the nursery’s therapeutic classroom. Here, Collins presents nursing student Darylyn Capps of Fruitland with a $500 check for school.
