Pinwheel Celebration

Join the Community Pinwheel Campaign

Plant a Pinwheel for Prevention

LACASA Center’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council hosts its annual Plant a Pinwheel Celebration each April to commemorate National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The community gathers at the Howell Carnegie District Library for a presentation on child abuse prevention. The event culminates with children and adults planting a Pinwheel Garden along the library’s front entrance.

Blue pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention. The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures that all children deserve.

The Pinwheel Garden project symbolizes the community’s commitment to protect the children of Livingston County.

LACASA’s Pinwheel Day is part of the national Pinwheels for Prevention campaign conducted each year by Prevent Child Abuse America.

Plant Your Own Garden

Area schools, businesses and organizations are invited to get involved and plant a pinwheel garden at entrances or on front lawns during the month of April.

We also offer Home Pinwheel Kits and Pinwheel Bouquets for a suggested donation.

If you would like to order pinwheels with awareness posters for your organization, or home kits for your residence, contact our CAP Council at 517-548-1350 or

Please join us in recognizing this national month and building awareness about how to prevent child abuse in our community.
