April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
The Community Collaboration for Children and Kentucky’s Department for Community Based Services are raising awareness Thursday in Owensboro.
They are sponsoring “The Stand Against Child Abuse” from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in front of the former Texas Gas building to bring attention to abuse and neglect of minors across the community, state, and nation.
The event is open to the public.
Activities such as face painting, balloons, and a bounce house are planned.
