CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION MONTH
April is recognized nationally as Child Abuse Prevention Month. There are tons of ways to get involved. Click here to visit our Child Abuse Prevention Month page. Help us raise awareness by ordering your own Pinwheels for Prevention garden or by ordering a Keep Calm and Plant a Pinwheel t-shirt!
Please note: Due to the dock worker's strike in California, our pinwheels are stuck in a backlog waiting to go through U.S. Customs. As soon as they arrive in Baton Rouge we will ship them out to anyone who has ordered and will also plant them at all originally planned locations. Please contact our office with any questions and thank you for your patience!
