April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and Childhaven is encouraging everyone in our community to take time to think about how they can help prevent child abuse and neglect. Better yet, we’ve come up with a sweet way to help you get the conversation going. Childhaven is partnering with Top Pot Doughnuts this month to raise awareness with a special doughnut capturing our new brand colors in icing and sprinkles.
So if you’ve never taken action before on the issue of child abuse and neglect, there is no better time to start. Simply grab coffee and doughnuts with a friend, neighbor, or coworker and talk about the how you can positively impact the lives of children and families in your community and beyond.
“Everyone’s participation is critical to preventing child abuse and neglect, but we know sometimes it can be a difficult topic to discuss,” says Maria Chavez Wilcox, Childhaven President and CEO. “With doughnuts, we are trying to make it a piece of cake!”
The doughnuts are available at every Top Pot store in Washington and Texas all month long. And proceeds from the Top Pot Doughnut Dash 5K & Kids Dash on Sunday, April 24 at Greenlake will benefit Childhaven.
For more information and resources about child abuse and neglect, we invite you to visit the “Helpful Links” page of our website. And if you’re looking to deepen your connection to our mission, we have lots of ways you can “Get Involved.”
