About the Pinwheel Gardens

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month. Bright blue pinwheels are a symbol of child abuse prevention awareness across the nation. Pinwheel gardens demonstrate to child victims and their families that the community supports them. 

Ralston House is Planting Hope with its gardens. Their goal is to raise $55,000 for Ralston House services in 2017 from gardens and from selling individual pinwheels and to raise awareness of child abuse in the community. Three to four large gardens will be planted, and we are asking the community to plant small gardens. 

How You Can Help

Please join Ralston House in Planting Hope, and you can be a part of spreading the message of prevention and help Ralston House meet its goal of $55,000.

1. Call Ralston House at 720-898-6752 to order a garden kit containing 50 pinwheels, signage, pamphlets and a collection envelope.

2. Collect donations for pinwheels at your location. Pinwheels are sold for $5 each.

3. During the month of April, plant the pinwheel "garden" at your location with the yard sign provided to explain the project.
