There will be 1,957 pinwheels on display outside of the Kiii studios Wednesday.

It is the second year 3News has helped sponsor Pinwheels for the Prevention of Child Abuse. Donations will benefit the Children's Advocacy Center of the Coastal Bend.

"Because our center is utilized so much by our team, which is law enforcement, Child Protective Services, the DA's office," said Mindy Jimenez of the Children's Advocacy Center; "for all 12 counties in the Coastal Bend, we have a really high number of cases that come through here."

Stop by the Kiii studios at 5002 South Padre Island Drive. Show up starting at 5 a.m. and do your part to make a difference in a child's life.
