CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – If you drive along Fifth Avenue a field of silver and blue pinwheels may catch your eye, and that’s exactly the goal.
The display, in the lawn of a Summit Health building, supports Pinwheels for Prevention, a national effort to raise awareness for child abuse during the month of April. Summit Health aims to support children in all stages of development, in wellness as well as when they are sick or injured.
In 2008, Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel as the new national symbol for child abuse prevention.
