It was a tremendous month! 

Thank you to EVERYONE who supported, attended and participated
in the activities that were heldto help raise about the important issue
of child abuse and neglect prevention.  A special thank youto all the community leaders
and children who agreed to be featured in our special 'Wear Blue' video

Finally, thank you to all children who participated in the annual Poster/Slogan
Creative Contest. This year, more than 200 entries were received!  In the end,
the Grand Prize Winning sloganthat was chosen is 'A Family the Anchor in Rough Waters'
