Montgomery County's Mission Kids 'plants' pinwheels for Child Abuse Prevention month
Other activities for Child Abuse Prevention Month include CCCC students, under the direction of Shane Britt, placing our signs about child abuse awareness in Concordia, Clyde, Miltonvale and Aurora.
During April, to mark National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Care Center is raising awareness about child abuse prevention.
Child abuse is a problem that often happens behind closed doors. April is devoted to celebrating everything we can do to transform our communities into places that care about and actively support families and children.
It doesn't matter if it is a blue shirt, blue hair or blue suede shoes, the unified, community-wide act of wearing blue will help raise awareness that child abuse is preventable.
Specifically, 418 blue pinwheels will be inserted into the ground at each location to represent the 418 children served by the Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) in McLean, Livingston and DeWitt counties and foster children in McLean County served by a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA).
"We do see them as they come in and most times it's in their most vulnerable states", Leal said.
"Child abuse is such an ugly topic and pinwheels say childhood, happy, fun".
During the event, 104 blue balloons were released to represent the 104 children that the Huntington County Department of Child Services supported on previous year.
