Over 30 volunteers turned out by Valdosta City Hall to place pinwheels on the the front lawn.
One-by-one they planted 770 of them to represent how many child abuse cases were reported in Lowndes County last year.
Then, they gathered to tie blue ribbons around lamp posts to symbolize those very children who need our support.
"Child abuse is here, it does exist. A lot of people want to say it doesn't exist in Lowndes County or it's not in my community, and it really is," said Brenda Hodges, the executive director of the Children's Advocacy Center of Lowndes County. "It's in every community."
To raise awareness tonight, Kappa Delta sisters will be passing out balloons in Bennie's Alley downtown from 5 p.m. to 7p.m.
