Pinwheels for Prevention


April is Child Abuse Prevention Month!

Look for Pinwheel Gardens around the City as a part of the Pinwheels for Prevention Project 

Prevent Child Abuse America launched the national Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign in April of 2008. Since then, over 5 million pinwheels have been displayed nationwide. The campaign symbol, a blue and silver pinwheel, is a reminder of the happy childhoods and bright futures that all children deserve. Prevent Child Abuse Virginia adopted the Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign to spread a message of resilience, engage communities, and inspire individual action across Virginia.
