April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and to help raise awareness, NECCO of Logan is participating in the Pinwheels for Prevention Campaign. The pinwheel, particularly with the colors blue and silver, is a national symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention.
Several NECCO staff members and volunteers “planted” a Pinwheel Garden in Chief Logan State Park Tues., April 1. The Pinwheel Garden, located in the lawn around the statue of Chief Logan that stands in front of the Museum in the Park, consists of blue and silver pinwheels formed in the shape of a peace sign. Multi-colored pinwheels were used to decorate around the statue of Chief Logan and the walk leading to the statue. NECCO hopes the Pinwheel Garden will serve as a reminder to our community that all children deserve a happy life free from child abuse and neglect.
NECCO is a foster care agency located in four states: West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and Georgia. West Virginia offices are located in Logan County, Kanawha County and Cabell County. The Logan County office is located on Dingess Street in downtown Logan and serves Logan, Mingo, Boone, Lincoln and Wyoming Counties. NECCO is committed to providing every child with the care and safety they deserve. One way you can help NECCO with this mission is by becoming a foster parent. NECCO of Logan is actively seeking dedicated parents who are committed to helping be a part of the solution to help end child abuse and neglect.
