Interactive Map of GFWC Pinwheel Gardens 2017
April 18, 2017
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and GFWC is proud to support Prevent Child Abuse America in its Pinwheels for Prevention® campaign. Every year, clubwomen raise awareness of child abuse and promote healthy childhoods by planting pinwheel gardens. Prevent Child Abuse America introduced the pinwheel in 2008 as the official symbol of great childhoods. The pinwheel reminds us of our own childhoods and the fact that all children deserve to be happy and healthy.
Check out our interactive map showing locations of GFWC-sponsored pinwheel gardens across the country below!
