LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18)– A local restaurant is raising awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month on Wednesday.
Dozens of non-profits, including CASA of Lexington, will gather at Raising Cane’s on Nicholasville Road around 8:30 a.m. to plant pinwheels in the lawn for each substantiated case of child abuse and child neglect in Fayette County.
They chose pinwheels because they’re a symbol of hope.
Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky, Children’s Advocacy Center, Arbor Youth Services, Lexington Family Care Center, The Hands Program, and others, will be at the restaurant to provide information to anyone who wants to learn more.
If you want to help, visit casaoflexington.org to find out how donate and/or volunteer and make a difference in a child’s life.
That’s how many cases of child abuse or neglect there were in Fayette County last year.
This morning @CASAofLexington & dozens of other non-profits will plant pinwheels at @Raising_Canes to raise awareness for Child Abuse Prevention Month. Details coming up on @LEX18News pic.twitter.com/xFUyDOKBkq
