Participate in Pinwheels for Prevention During Child Abuse Awareness Month in April

April 01, 2021

Pinwheels for Prevention

This nationwide campaign raises awareness of child abuse prevention with the image of the blue pinwheel, and throughout the month of April, you’ll see them on the lawns of several of our hospitals as part of this important campaign.

The pinwheel is a symbol for the bright childhood all children deserve; one filled with hope and possibility. Sadly, that isn’t always the one they experience. This month, please join us and make a difference in the lives of children who need it most by making a gift to the UPMC Pinnacle Children’s Resource Center (CRC).

The CRC provides resources, specialized medical care, and mental health services to more than 1,300 children annually who have experienced abuse or neglect. Each CRC appointment costs $1,000 to $1,500, but families never receive a bill for the care they receive.

Your generosity makes this healing possible, ensuring all children have a chance for the brighter tomorrow that they deserve.
