April is Child Abuse Prevention Month and the Exchange Club of Pearland is hosting a special event for it.
An Awareness Field Dedication Ceremony for Child Abuse Prevention will take place Wednesday, April 4 at 3 p.m. at Pearland Town Center at 11200 Broadway St. in Pearland.
The field will have 731 blue pinwheels and three crosses. This represents the 731 confirmed cases of child abuse in Brazoria County in 2017 and the three deaths that occurred that year from the abuse.
The field is at the corner of Business Center Drive and the Mall Entry.
The Exchange Club of Pearland is a nonprofit organization in Pearland that meets the second and fourth Wednesdays each month at Casa Ole at 3100 Broadway.
