If you are driving around Fort Bend County, you might notice a lot of blue in the landscape these days. Child Advocates of Fort Bend and Exchange Club of Sugar Land have joined forces to blanket the County in blue this April for Child Abuse Prevention Month. On Saturday, April 14th, Child Advocates of Fort Bend kicked off the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office Pinwheel Project with their annual Light of Hope Ceremony with help from Exchange Club of Sugar Land and The Fort Bend County Child Welfare Board. Child Advocates of Fort Bend Board President Denny Adelung welcomed everyone and shared some statistics about child abuse. Exchange Club of Sugar Land President Rod White told the story of the blue ribbon and Child Advocates of Fort Bend CEO Ruthanne Mefford shared information on how people can get involved.

Shown (L to R) are: Fort Bend County Sheriff Troy Nehls, Exchange Club of Sugar Land President Rod White, Child Advocates of Fort Bend Board President Denny Adelung, Child Advocates of Fort Bend CEO Ruthanne Mefford, Child Advocates of Fort Bend Volunteer and FRIENDS Council member Sue Lockwood and Board Member and FRIENDS of Child Advocates of Fort Bend Council Chair Pat Somers.
