The 2020-2022 Administration theme is “Turning for Tomorrow”. This theme is symbolized with a pinwheel. The pinwheel reminds us of the playful spirit of a child and symbolizes a healthy childhood which all children deserve. Club project work will be through Children’s Trust of SC with an emphasis on prevention awareness. Clubs will embrace this theme through their projects, speakers and planting of pinwheel gardens. Pinwheel gardens planted in local businesses, parks and schools helps raise awareness of child abuse prevention.
The General Federation of Women’s Clubs, GFWC, has a longstanding commitment to supporting organizations that advocate for child abuse prevention. One affiliate organization is Prevent Child Abuse America. Children’s Trust of SC falls under this organization locally.
Clubs can support bringing awareness to child abuse by planting a pinwheel garden. The Children’s Trust of SC has put together a pinwheel garden kit for our clubs. The cost of the kit is $100. Contents are: 48 pinwheels, Yard sign, pinwheel lapel pins (5) and educational materials about the signs of child abuse and neglect. The pinwheel garden can be planted in areas of the community that children are familiar with and visit often, such as local library, school yard or children-oriented businesses. To order a kit contact Maggie Lynn via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Celebrate by planting a garden or supporting Children’s Trust of SC.
GFWC-SC pinwheels will be turning across our state to bring awareness to child prevention which leads to a better tomorrow.
