Alameda Day Care Center to Reopen; Seeks Donations


Neighbors in the area near Lincoln Avenue and Park Street are asking Alameda residents to support the Lyons family, who were displaced after their home and family business — a day-care center — caught fire on March 10.

As the family rebuilds its life and work at a new Alameda location, Marva says she is seeking donations to furnish the house and day-care center; gift cards for food, clothing and personal needs are also being accepted.

Donations can be dropped off at the Lyons new address — 303 Central Ave., the new home of Marva’s Happy Town Day Care.

To see a list of donations being managed by Patch contributor Mary Grace Basco, go online to this spreadsheet.
