The event, planned for Tuesday, April 3 at 1:45 p.m. on Stapp Lawn at Campbellsville University is open to the public.
The nationwide Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign has seen more than 4 million pinwheels distributed throughout the nation since 2008, with Kentucky distributing more than 300,000. Kentucky’s total ranks second in the nation. Pinwheels are the national symbol of child abuse prevention and a visible reminder of the happy and healthy childhood all children deserve.
Annually, more than two hundred organizations are involved in Child Abuse Prevention Month activities in Kentucky. Campbellsville has been participating since 2009.
