Blue Kite Campaign
With April being National Child Abuse Prevention Month, it is the perfect time to raise awareness in the community. In 2014, there were 4,464 reports 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, 2015 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
- The Original Austin’s
- Webster Avenue Market
- Olsen’s Piggly Wiggly
- Oconto Area Nonprofit Inc.
- Quality Auto Repair Inc.
- The Enchanted Florist
- Liberty Tax Service
Thank you for supporting the Blue Kite Campaign!
Also keep your heads up for Blue Lights for Blue Kites – which will raise awareness to child abuse prevention by turning blue lights on for April. Schreiber Foods will be turning their lights blue at their Downtown Green Bay Headquarters. We have limited amount of regular blue light bulbs available for other businesses to participate.
