Plant a Pinwheel Day!

PLANT A PINWHEEL DAY: Join us each April to hear speakers, listen to music, and plant a pinwheel garden.

 

LACASA Center’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council hosts its annual Plant a Pinwheel Celebration each April to commemorate National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The community gathers at the Howell Carnegie District Library for a presentation on child abuse prevention. The event culminates with children from area schools planting a Pinwheel Garden along the library’s front entrance.

Blue pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention. The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures that all children deserve.

The Pinwheel Garden project symbolizes the community’s commitment to protect the children of Livingston County. 

LACASA’s Pinwheel Day is part of the national Pinwheels for Prevention campaign conducted each year by Prevent Child Abuse America.

Plant Your Own Garden

If your school, business or organization would like to plant a pinwheel garden in April, please contact LACASA’s CAP Coordinator, Holly Naylor, at 517-548-1350 or hnaylor@lacasacenter.org. Please join us in recognizing this national month and building awareness about how to prevent child abuse in our community.
