Pinwheels for Prevention

Join the fight against child abuse by participating in Pinwheels for Prevention. This event is held annually, all across the nation during the month of April, which is Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention month. This nationally recognized event acknowledges the importance of communities working together to prevent child physical and sexual abuse.

Banners and signs are placed outside of businesses and homes all across America during the month of April. Pinwheels are placed alongside the banners to remind us of the nostalgic childhoods that most of us had. And to also remind us of the childhoods that many do not wish to remember.


You can do your part this April by purchasing one of these signs or banners and place it outside your home or business along with sparkly pinwheels. 1836Ink has graciously agreed to donate a portion of the sales of these signs back to the Children’s safety Center. You can purchase directly from their website

The Children’s Safety Center is also joining the fight by placing our own banners in 8 locations across Washington County along with 100 pinwheels at each location. Please see the agenda below and feel free to come out and help us plant pinwheels and raise awareness.
This schedule is tentative and will change as we practice social distancing.
