Family Support Council offers open house for Child Abuse Prevention Month

Staff reports

April is National Child Abuse Prevention month. This year’s theme is “Nurturing Family Growth Planting seeds for future generations.”

The Family Support Council will be sponsoring an open house on Saturday, April 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to promote awareness on ways to end child abuse and neglect.

The first 150 children at the event will receive a Project KidCare ID, complete with a Polaroid picture and a place to record vital emergency information.

The Douglas County Sheriff’s Department Explorers will also be on hand to fingerprint each child. Parents will be able to pick up information and talk to representatives from various community agencies on how to confront important child abuse and neglect issues.

A representative from West Coast Tae Kwon Do will be present to demonstrate to children what to do if they are grabbed by a stranger. The East Fork Fire District will be on hand to promote safety rules. Free balloons, popcorn and drinks will be available.

The Family Support Council is located at 1255 Waterloo Lane, Gardnerville.
