In honor of April being Child Abuse Prevention Month, JE and ZB Butler Child Advocacy Center at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore lead an effort by hosting a Tuesday, April 26 pinwheel planting day at Montefiore Moses Campus. The Montefiore community united at the campus’ East garden to plant pinwheels which symbolize hope and a commitment to prevent child abuse before it starts. The event featured live music from the Bobby ‘Baby’ Quartet and an information table regarding child abuse prevention.
