'Pinwheels for Prevention' on Old Main lawn, April 27

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — With April being National Child Abuse Awareness month, all Penn State student, faculty and staff are invited to stop by the Old Main lawn at 12:15 p.m. on April 27 and help the Child Maltreatment Prevention Network plant a pinwheel garden.

The Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign is the national platform of Prevent Child Abuse America that began in 2008 and has firmly established the pinwheel as the new symbol of child abuse prevention. The pinwheel stands for the carefree childhood we want for all children and is a call to neighbors, community members and leaders to play a role in protecting and nurturing our youngest citizens. Prevent Child Abuse America's ultimate goal is for abuse and neglect to never occur and to share the message that "Prevention is Possible."
