Pinwheels for Prevention

April- Pinwheels for Prevention®

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and we invite you to show your support for our nation's children by making your own pinwheel display!

Pinwheels are the national symbol of child abuse prevention and a visible reminder of the happy and healthy childhood that all children deserve.

Project Description

Make or purchase inexpensive pinwheels and create a pinwheel garden in your yard or at a local business (with permission). Or you can make a Pinwheels for Prevention poster to display on your front porch or window, and be sure to include your school's name!

Community Service Events

In the month of April SCVCS will participate by encouraging students to create a Pinwheel Garden in their local community (with permission). Each family is requested to photograph and share on the school Facebook page.

Do you live in or around the Florence area and want to participate in a group service project?

Stop by the Florence County Library to create Pinwheels for Prevention and make an indoor garden to display on site to create awareness against child abuse. Students, parents, and learning coaches should meet at the library from 4:00pm to 5:30pm upstairs in Room 253.
