Pinwheel Ceremony – April 6th 12 p.m. – 1p.m. Midland County Courthouse Front Lawn

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month (CAP). Safe and Sound Child Advocacy Center works tirelessly year round to address and prevent child abuse and neglect.

The blue pinwheel is a nationally recognized symbol of the hope, healing, and happiness deserving of every child. When the entire community takes responsibility for creating healthy environments for children, we lay the foundation for growth and development.

This quick lunch time planting will start at 12 and run until 1 p.m. We invite all community members who want to commit to #StandUpForKids and #BeTheOne to make a difference in the life of a child here in Midland county. This ceremony will look a little different than the past. To avoid the congregation of a group of people, we will not have an official ceremony or speaker but rather we will have pinwheels available for you to come and plant! Think of it as a drive by planting!

**Masks required** Social distancing required ** COVID-19 Protocols followed **

Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign Objectives include:
1. Generate greater awareness of our organization, mission and programs;
2. Increase knowledge of child abuse and neglect prevention;
3. Foster measurable changes in attitudes and beliefs toward child abuse and neglect prevention; and
4. Foster measurable changes in behaviors with regard to child abuse and neglect prevention.”
