We depend on our April fundraising events during Child Abuse Prevention Month to fund our efforts all year long,” said Laura Armeni-Kneesel, director of development at Olive Crest in Nevada. “When our supporters donate their time and resources, attend an event, or simply wear blue on April 7, they encourage everyone else in the community to show their support. They also help to raise awareness about the essential work we do to prevent child abuse and to rebuild families.”
