Join Us Saturday for the 6th Annual Pinwheel Project

Bring the kids and come on out Saturday to Homestead Park in Richmond for the Pinwheel Project, a fun-filled community event that celebrates National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Sprint Waste Services once again joins the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Crimes Against Children Unit, surrounding agencies and fellow sponsors to help make this absolutely free event possible.

The beauty of the Pinwheel Project is it educates the community about the difficult subject of child abuse and prevention in a fun setting, while promoting strong relationships and trust between families and the law enforcement community. The event allows the community to interact with the law officers and first responders who serve Fort Bend County child abuse victims, all while enjoying game booths, prizes, inflatables, free food and drinks, snow cones, cotton candy, popcorn, bike raffles, t-shirts and giveaways.

Why is it called the Pinwheel Project? Since 2008 blue pinwheels have been the national symbol of child abuse prevention because of their positive association with children and with happy images of childhood. They represent the hope that every child will be raised in a healthy, safe and nurturing environment. During April blue pinwheels and blue ribbons are used to raise awareness for child abuse and prevention across the country and at the grassroots level.

The Pinwheel Project is 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 13 at 1422 Eugene Heimann Circle, Richmond, Texas, across from the Fort Bend County Justice Center. For more information, call 281.341.3827.
