Beebe Healthcare will mark Child Abuse Prevention Month this April by planting pinwheels to symbolize the right of Delaware children to grow up free from abuse and neglect.

Beebe is partnering with Prevent Child Abuse Delaware, which is leading the charge in Delaware with programs, activities and social media campaigns that help recognize the importance of preventing child abuse.

Beebe will participate in the Pinwheels for Prevention Program by planting pinwheels April 13 at the Medical Center in Lewes, 424 Savannah Road, and at the Rehoboth Beach Health Campus, 18941 John J. Williams Highway. A rain date is set for April 20.

PCAD has programs that teach children about personal safety and the difference between good and bad touches as well as what to do if neglect is identified or abuse occurs. PCAD also has programs that teach adults how to prevent, recognize and responsibly react to child abuse.

The Pinwheels for Prevention Program will be implemented throughout the month in the state. Pinwheel gardens will be planted in schools, hospitals, organizations and government agencies using the PCAD pinwheel.
