In recognition of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, the Steuben County Task Force for the Prevention of Child Abuse conducts its annual county-wide Pinwheel & Promises Campaign.
The simple but beautiful Pinwheel is a national symbol to raise awareness about the prevalence and preventability of child abuse. Through coordinated efforts, volunteers across the county create and proudly display pinwheels at schools, Youth Centers, Parent Resource Centers, daycare centers, and even supporting businesses, to spread the message that we all make a Promise to do something to help prevent child abuse.
Make a pinwheel. Make a Promise. Prevent Child Abuse.
Directions for making pinwheels are posted below, and we encourage volunteer groups to make them and display them in your communities. Pinwheels are also available in many stores and through online retailers.
