Blue Pinwheels are popping up across Lafayette on Friday. Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana held its annual Pass The Pinwheel event at locations across the Hub City. The public-awareness campaign designed to bring awareness to child abuse, promote healthy families and raise funds to further those causes.
Amanda Blunson, Exec. Dir. of Prevent Child Abuse Louisiana said, “Pass The Pinwheel is our way to recognize the small acts that people are doing every day that make child abuse less likely that help strengthen families. Those are things like being a nurturing parent or mentoring a child or volunteering for a community agency. Those are all ways we can prevent child abuse and neglect.”
