ELKHART Co.--- The community has one of the biggest roles to play in preventing child abuse.
The "Pinwheels for Prevention" campaign held candlelight celebrations across the state including in Elkhart County.
April is "Child Abuse Prevention Month," and tonight’s event encouraged residents to take a stand for vulnerable kids.
Miss Indiana joined the group, speaking about her own experience with child abuse.
One of the goals of the celebration was to show unity, demonstrated by statewide celebrations held at the same time tonight.
