Students at Minetto Elementary School joined students throughout Oswego County in participating in the Pinwheels for Prevention campaign in April.

In recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month students sold pinwheels to raise funds in support of the Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County and planted pinwheel gardens on the school grounds. An initiative of Prevent Child Abuse America, the focus of the Pinwheels for Prevention program is to not only raise awareness of child abuse but more importantly, transform that awareness into action.

Located at 301 Beech Street in Fulton, the CAC is a non-profit organization that works hand-in-hand with local law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, medical providers, mental health providers, and victim advocacy professionals in Oswego County to protect and serve child victims of sexual and physical abuse. For more information on the CAC you may contact them at 315-59-CHILD or visit their website at www.oswegocac.org.
