WABASH VALLEY (WTHI) - Preventing child abuse across the Wabash Valley.

On Wednesday, blue pinwheels were placed on the Vigo County Courthouse lawn.

It is to represent Child Abuse Awareness.

Several different or1ganizations, including the Department of Child Services and CASA, were in attendance, along with a number of volunteers.

They were all there to speak out for children who can't speak for themselves.

"It takes a community to raise a child. The little adage it takes a village to raise a child...so we all meet to be aware and be looking out and be aware of what's going on in our community," Gleena Cheeseman, from Vigo County CASA, said.

Officials say if you see something, say something.

In Indiana, call 800.800.5556
In Illinois, call 800.25-ABUSE

In an emergency situation, call 9-1-1.
