Plant a Pinwheel Garden
Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina is inviting the Triangle to show your community you support children’s healthy development with a pinwheel garden this April. PInwheel gardens represent PCANC’s effort to focus on community activities that support families and public policies that prioritize prevention right from the start to make sure child abuse and neglect never occur.

Pinwheels are increasingly being used to help educate communities about the importance of supporting children and families. Shining in the sun, the pinwheel is reflective of the bright future all children deserve and our belief that getting it right early is less costly than trying to fix it later.

Nearly 900,000 pinwheels have been displayed nationwide since April 2008. PCANC invites you to join us in showing your support for children’s healthy development and growth – the foundation for community and economic growth – by planting a pinwheel garden in your community.

To join American Tobacco & FOX 50 at the 9am planting in Durham on April 3rd, contact Valerie Ward at
