Monday is your chance to join the fight to stop child abuse in South Texas, one pinwheel at a time. Tomorrow kicks off Pinwheels for Prevention of Child Abuse Month.
The Department of Family and Protective Services will be joining the Nueces County Child Welfare Board and others at the Nueces County Courthouse for the event. It will take place on the Lipan side.
156 pinwheels will be placed on the courthouse grounds to symbolize the number of children in Texas who died as a result of abuse or neglect -- five of those children were from right here in Nueces county.
