Wear Blue Day – April 7th
Friday, April 7th is Wear Blue Day in Delaware.
Every year, Prevent Child Abuse state chapters promote Wear Blue Day to raise awareness and engage their local communities. Blue is the color of child abuse prevention and wearing blue sends a strong signal of advocacy and support. Whether it’s your office, your classroom or your family, get everyone excited to go blue.
One of the first signs of spring every April is pinwheel gardens blooming throughout Delaware. “Growing” your pinwheel garden is the perfect way to grow the awareness of child abuse prevention efforts in the First State. Contact us today to plan a pinwheel garden of your own and make sure you get your pinwheels on time.
