National Child Abuse Prevention Month: Pinwheels for Prevention® Campaign
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, a time to remember that we can each play a part in promoting the social and emotional well-being of children and families in our community. To help promote this reminder, Prevent Child Abuse America and local chapters nationwide use the Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign. The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures all children deserve. We want to reinforce the notion that healthy child development serves as a foundation for both community and economic development.
