BECKLEY -

Dozens of colorful pinwheels are on display in the lawn of the mayors office today.

A group of preschoolers helped the just for kids organization plant the pinwheels for child abuse awareness month.

The mayor of Beckley also read a proclamation to officially recognize April as child abuse awareness month for the city of Beckley.  Organizers said the event is a great way to spread the word around town.

Scott Miller, the executive director for Just for Kids, Inc. said preventing child abuse is really a team effort between the community, law enforcement, and organizations like Just for Kids in Raleigh County.

Pinwheels for prevention and child abuse awareness month are both recognized nationally.
