2018 Pinwheel Garden Planting
March 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Spring has sprung; flowers are blooming; and pinwheels will be popping up all over as a reminder of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month!
The Child Advocacy Center (CAC) will host a Pinwheel Garden planting on Thursday, March 29, at noon in honor of the 696 children served by the center in fiscal year 2017. The ceremony will take place at the CAC at 222 Rowan Street in Fayetteville.
The public is cordially invited to attend.
The pinwheels will remain on display throughout the month of April.
Pinwheel garden kits as well as other pinwheel paraphernalia are available for purchase here.
“The community’s support of Child Abuse Prevention Month has grown each year. We expect that this April there will be more than 10,000 pinwheels on display in Cumberland County,” said Faith Boehmer, Volunteer and Prevention Coordinator for the CAC.
The pinwheel serves as a reminder of a happy, safe and carefree childhood, one that every child deserves. Adopted by Prevent Child Abuse America, more than a million pinwheels have been displayed nationwide since April 2008 when the campaign began.
