Blue Kite Campaign 2014
With April being National Child Abuse Prevention Month, it is the perfect time to raise awareness in the community. In 2013, there were 4,671 reported cases of suspected child abuse and neglect in Brown County. Many families could use the support and benefits of programming offered at Family & CHildcare Resources of N.E.W. and now we are seeing increased need for those services in our community.
At Family & Childcare Resources of N.E.W., we are dedicated to supporting healthy early childhood development by providing high quality education, support, and programs to families and early childhood professionals. These programs work to reduce and prevent child abuse in our community through trainings, workshops, home visiting and other programs.
Throughout the month of April, participating local businesses will be selling kite pin-ups for $1 at point-of-sale. 100% of the profits then go towards child abuse prevention programming in the local area.
Please help us kick off our Blue Kite Campaign with a short ceremony at our 201 W. Walnut location on April 1, 2014 at 9 am. Or support the campaign by purchasing a Blue Kite pin up at one of these locations during the month of April:
University Avenue Market

Blue Kite Restaurant Days
New this year we are adding another way you can support during the month of April. We are teaming up with a few local restaurants and just by eating out you can support the Blue Kite Campaign. Local Restaurants will be giving back when diners bring in a flyer to let them know they are there to support the Blue Kite Campaign.
