Pinwheels for Prevention:
Pinwheels have become a national symbol of child abuse prevention, representing the joyful and carefree childhood everyone should have. Community members have used the pinwheels to raise awareness of the importance of supporting families through activities such as planting pinwheel gardens, giving pinwheels to childcare providers, or asking businesses to display pinwheels as a sign of support. Most of these efforts take place in April but can occur year-round. Learn more.
