Prevent Child Abuse Coweta (PCAC) continues its call for volunteers. The purpose of the group is to raise awareness and to provide education about child abuse and neglect. The public is very much needed by PCAC and is invited to the next meeting to be held at 10 a.m. on Friday.

Rutledge Center is the meeting site and is located at 61 Hospital Rd., just across from the old Piedmont Newnan Hospital.

Anyone who is interested in being on the email list for PCAC has only to send a response to pcacoweta@gmail.com or call 770-252-0894. Persons responding will be added to the PCAC email list to be kept informed of future meetings and calls to action.

PCAC is needed as an advocate organization in our community. Child abuse is a problem that so often goes undetected, thereby leading to a child suffering irreparable damage.

The annual installation of pinwheels representing cases of child abuse in Coweta County will be held on April 2 at 10 a.m. Volunteers are needed and welcomed at the site in front of the Wadsworth Auditorium on Jefferson Street.

The Annual Candlelight Vigil for Prevent Child Abuse will held in Veterans Park on Jackson Street with date to be announced.
