Pinwheels For Prevention Returns to Oswego Schools

OSWEGO, NY – In conjunction with Child Abuse Prevention Month the Oswego City Schools will be conducting a “Pinwheels for Prevention” campaign during the month of April.

Donations will be accepted and paper pinwheels sold throughout the month, and pinwheel gardens will be planted in front of the schools as well as at the Education Center.

Oswego elementary students gathered with a pinwheel garden. Gathering around the “garden” are Kayla Beall, Meghan Albright, Abby Reith, Jenna Bradshaw, Emilee Munger, Caeden Ross, Travis Sova and Eve Hibbert.

Not only does this project bring awareness to the issues of child abuse, but will raise money for the Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County.

A non-profit organization, the CAC works hand-in-hand with local law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, medical providers, therapy providers and victim advocacy professionals in Oswego County to protect and serve children that are victims of sexual and physical abuse.

In 2013 the CAC served 475 children and families in Oswego County, a 42% increase from 2012.
