GTPD Community Bulletin: Pinwheels For Prevention

You may have noticed our pinwheel garden pop up in front of Gloucester Township Police headquarters...

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and there’s a role for everyone in the community.

We are raising awareness through "Pinwheels for Prevention".

In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention®. What our research showed, and what our experiences since then have borne out, is that people respond to the pinwheel. By its very nature, the pinwheel connotes whimsy and childlike notions. In essence, it has come to serve as the physical embodiment, or reminder, of the great childhoods we want for all children.

Throughout April, celebrate the lives you touch and those who have touched yours by honoring them with a pinwheel – the national symbol for the great childhoods all children deserve because our children are our future.
