Child Abuse Prevention in Frederick County, Maryland

EVENTS

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and to remember the millions of children who are victims of abuse/neglect, Blue Sunday Child Abuse Prevention is asking the faith community to pray on Sunday, April 30, 2023.

How to pray for abused children on Blue Sunday:

Pray they will be rescued

Pray they are placed with caring people

Pray their minds and bodies can heal

Pray they find hope

Pray for those who rescue them

Let’s pray, educate ourselves, and volunteer until black and blue are just colors in a child’s crayon box.

Proclamation ceremonies to honor and recognize the dedicated individuals, organizations, and our Child Advocacy Center of Frederick County MD, for Child Abuse Prevention Month are held throughout the county, city and municipalities (Emmitsburg, Thurmont, Walkersville, Middletown, Thurmont, Frederick county and Frederick city). Many thanks to all of them for their support!

Thank you to all who voted for our tugboat, SS Pinwheel. We appreciate your donations.


The 2022-23 Sailing Through the Winter Solstice display will take place from November 19, 2022 to March 4, 2023.  You can view the boats anytime day or night. In fact, you may want to take a look while it's light out and again after it gets dark and the lights come on. Lights typically turn on at sunset, so this is a great time to see them both ways.  Sailing Through the Winter Solstice is a fundraiser - visitors can vote on their favorite boat, with donations supporting local non-profit organizations.  Our boat, the SS Pinwheel, was built by and is sponsored by Premier Choice Exteriors.
