Support Child Abuse Prevention

Throughout April, when you buy from the Second Chance Shop and round up your bill or make a monetary donation, you can become eligible to win a $100 gift card.

It’s to benefit The Village for Families and Children’s “Pinwheels for Prevention” campaign supporting National Child Abuse Prevention Month.

The Second Chance Shop, which sells gently used clothing and collectibles, is operated by 80 volunteers and donates all its profits to The Village in Hartford.

How it works:

When you round up your bill or make a monetary donation in April, we’ll give you a web address or postcard with a QR code that you scan with your smartphone. The links take you to the $100 gift card entry page. Fill out the entry form and you’re in the running.

Child Abuse Prevention

Proceeds from the “Pinwheels for Prevention” campaign will fund Village programs for local child abuse prevention.

“When a newborn is flagged as ‘at risk,’ we are notified to follow and support a family from birth to age 5,” says The Village. “We currently are helping 217 local families. The ‘Pinwheels’ in the ‘Pinwheels for Prevention’ campaign reminds us that we all play a role in children’s lives.”
