Anti-child abuse campaign launched by Spring Valley students

March 27, 2013 

— Spring Valley High School students are hoping a swath of brightly colored spinning pinwheels will make people stop and hear their message of Pinwheels for Prevention.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Pinwheels have been adopted to symbolize a happy and healthy childhood.

‘Pinwheels for Prevention’ is a fundraising and community awareness program, led by students Chrissy Parker and Jake Jordan and sponsored by Spring Valley High School and The Children’s Trust of South Carolina.

So far, students have received enough donations to “plant” more than 1,300 pinwheels at the front of the school. More pinwheels will be planted throughout April as students receive more donations.
