Pinwheels for Prevention: Raising Awareness about Child Abuse
Impact NW partners with local organizations to urge everyone to take action against child abuse.
On April 4th, 2016, Impact NW partnered with Child Abuse Response and Evaluation Services (CARES) and Vestal Elementary School to host a Pinwheels for Prevention event, an event pioneered by Prevent Child Abuse America.
The yearly campaign aims at raising awareness about child abuse and urges individuals and organizations to take action by learning more about prevention, supporting child and family friendly policies and services, and volunteering at the local, state, and national levels.
Speakers for our event included Ely Sanders-Wilcox from the Oregon Department of Education, Portland City Commissioner Dan Saltzman, Impact NW Managing Director Jeff Cogen, and Vestal Elementary School Principal Emily Glasgow.
