April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Response plants a "Pinwheel Garden" each April. The Pinwheel Garden honors all children in our community. Everyone is invited to come out and help plant the pinwheels, symbolizing the freedom of a carefree childhood that we wish for all our children. This year we planted "gardens" in Strasburg, Woodstock, and New Market. Thank you to the staff, volunteers, law enforcement, and preschools that helped us with this project. Check out these pictures from the events!
