Child abuse prevention month wraps up with a resource festival

Local

It’s about making connections to help children in the community.

It’s the first child abuse prevention festival.

“We are really excited to be able to offer to the community the parents in our community all the different resources out there to help them with children. You don’t get a parenting manual.” Said Jan Elliott Director of Pitt County Department of Social Services

Blue pinwheels and blue shirts floated through Greenville town common for today’s event.

“The blue pen wheel is reflective of the great childhoods that all kids deserve. We really believe it takes the whole community to take action.” Said Kristie Demers, Communications Manager for Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina

Kids, parents and community members all came out for fun and helpful information.

Hoping to leave with a smile and some knowledge.

“I hope they leave with new ideas new resources that they can reach out to. They now have community names that they can go to. That’s what this is about and that’s what I hope folks leave with. My goal is to work myself out of a job” said Elliott.
