Child Abuse Prevention Month Pinwheels

All children in New York deserve a healthy, happy and safe childhood. NYI Students participated in the program by planting pinwheels around the school campus.
To raise awareness of April as Child Abuse Prevention Month, Prevent Chiid Abuse New York (PCANY) and its sister chapters around the nation mobilize Pinwheels for Prevention campaigns. As part of these campaigns, New Yorkers make a promise to prevention by distributing pinwheels and hosting educational events throughout the state. Pinwheels are a symbol of a happy, carefree childhood and the belief that getting it right for kids early on is less costly than trying to fix problems after things have gone wrong. Doesn’t every child deserve this opportunity?
