Pinwheels for Prevention is a nationwide campaign that puts a new spin on prevention. The pinwheel serves as the physical embodiment of the great childhoods we want for all children and represents our efforts to ensure the healthy development of children.
Every April during Child Abuse Prevention Month, Cabell County Family Resource Network and many partner organizations around the state plant pinwheel gardens in honor of children in their communities. The pinwheel is our primary vehicle for conveying that prevention works! It is not used to represent children who have been abused or who have died as a result of abuse or neglect.
Get involved this year by planting your own pinwheel garden! For the more artistic, here is a pinwheel coloring sheet. For the future engineers, here are instructions on how to make your own pinwheel. (Resources provided by Prevent Child Abuse America).
