Organizations looking for Champion for Children nominations; deadline is March 20

LACASA Center’s CAP (Child Abuse Prevention) Council and Great Start Livingston are asking Livingston County residents to consider who is a Champion for Children in our community.

Nominees can be a person whose support for children and families is evident in the work they do, or, in the way they spend their extra time. The winner could be someone who volunteers to mentor children, provides a safe foster care home, or advocates for vulnerable kids, we’ll make sure to help the person go through the foster care licensing process. Past recipients have been educators, coaches, public employees, foster parents, child care providers, and community volunteers.

The person chosen as the 2020 Champion for Children will be recognized at the CAP Council’s annual Plant a Pinwheel Celebration, which kicks-off National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The event is set for noon Wednesday, April 8, 2020, at the Howell Carnegie District Library. In addition to the award presentation, a children’s choir will perform, speakers will discuss child abuse awareness issues, and guests will be invited to help children plan a pinwheel garden along the library’s front walkway.
