Club begins nationwide abuse-awareness drive

Awareness of child abuse and its prevention are the goals of the nationwide “Blue Mondays” campaign that the National Exchange Club, headquartered in Toledo, kicks off today.

“We want everyone to stand with us and wear blue on Mondays in April to create greater awareness of this tragic problem and to do what they can to make a difference in the lives of children and families,” said Tracey Edwards, Exchange Club executive vice president.

Blue-ribbon pins promoting the campaign are available from the Exchange Club, which in 1979 adopted child-abuse prevention as its national project.

The blue ribbon symbolizes the more than 3 million children who are reported annually to child-protective services agencies throughout the United States as having been abused or neglected.
