NIC men's basketball team plants “Pinwheels for Prevention” at Head Start

April is child abuse prevention month, a time to recognize that we each can play a part in promoting the social and emotional well-being of children and families in communities. Pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse prevention because they represent the happy, healthy childhood all kids deserve.

On April 9, the North Idaho College men’s basketball team members took time out of their busy schedule to plant a pinwheel garden at NIC Head Start’s central office. The garden will create awareness of the great potential of all children and the need to strengthen all families with support and nurturing.
