April is Child Abuse Prevention Month

pinwheelChild Abuse Prevention Month challenges our community to examine the impact of child abuse and what we CAN do to prevent it. Annually, we partner with local businesses to sell pinwheels or to plant pinwheel gardens throughout the region. The pinwheel is the national symbol for child abuse prevention and represents the healthy, happy, and full life all children deserve. Last year, over 5,000 pinwheels were sold throughout Bay and Saginaw counties, and over 2,000 pinwheels were planted in pinwheel gardens!

Join our efforts this year by planting a “garden” of pinwheels, or by selling pinwheels at your facility. The CAN Council will supply you with all the materials you will need to successfully promote your pinwheel sales or garden! By participating, you show your commitment to the safety of our children. To get involved or for more information, please give us a call at (989) 752-7226.
