Supporters plant pinwheel garden to bring awareness to child abuse
When the wind blows a sea of blue pinwheels spin in unison on the lawn of the Terrie Hess House. The pinwheels were placed into the ground Tuesday morning by supporters of Prevent Child Abuse Rowan, a program of the Terrie Hess House child advocacy center. The pinwheel garden is a statewide and national symbol of child abuse and neglect prevention. It’s a way to bring awareness to child abuse.
“It’s really important to do these kinds of events to bring awareness to child abuse, it involves the community and it honors those who are victims,” said Fundraising chair Matt Marsh.
For more about the pinwheel garden or to get a pinwheel, contact Prevent Child Abuse Rowan at 704-639-1700. The Terrie Hess House is located at 130 Woodson St., Salisbury and serves multiple counties. The Prevent Child Abuse Rowan Annual Brunch will take place 10 a.m. Friday at the Rowan Museum, 202 N. Main St. For more information about the brunch or to make a donation, contact Beth Moore via firstname.lastname@example.org.
