Pinwheels for Prevention | The Month Of April | Washington County
Join the fight against child abuse by participating in Pinwheels for Prevention. This event is held annually, all across the nation during the month of April, which is Child Abuse Prevention month. This nationally recognized event acknowledges the importance of communities working together to prevent child physical and sexual abuse.
Banners and pinwheels are placed outside of businesses and homes all across America during the month of April to raise awareness of the abuse that is happening and the advocacy centers that are here to help. Pinwheels are placed alongside the banners to remind us of the nostalgic childhoods that most of us had. And to also remind us of the childhoods that many do not wish to remember.
You can do your part this April by purchasing one of these signs or banners and place it outside your home or business along with sparkly pinwheels. Brian Young of Jackson-Young designs has so graciously agreed to donate a portion of the sales of these signs back to the Children’s safety Center. You can purchase directly from their website www.jackson-young.com
