ROMEOVILLE – Romeoville police are raising money for child abuse prevention through Pinwheels for Prevention.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and residents can make donations to the cause at the Romeoville Police Department, 1050 W. Romeo Road, according to a news release from the village.

Donors will receive a pinwheel and are encouraged to add it to the collection in front of the station, according to the release. Last year, the department raised $1,314 and donated the sum to the Guardian Angel Foundation in support of its efforts to prevent child abuse.

Mayor John Noak at this week’s Village Board meeting proclaimed April as Child Abuse Prevention Month.

“Every child deserves a safe environment to grow up in that is free from abuse,” Noak said. “Pinwheels for Prevention is a fantastic program that draws attention to the issue of child abuse and raises money to combat it. We’re proud to participate again in 2018.”
