In honor of Child Abuse Awareness and Prevention Month, River Bridge Regional Center (RBRC) held their 2nd Annual Speak Up for our Children fundraising event at the Garfield County Courthouse in Glenwood Springs on Saturday April 9th. 284 pinwheels were planted for each child RBRC served in 2021.
In addition, volunteers spoke up and read each of the Jane and John Doe names and ages, further acknowledging each child that has been affected by abuse and/or neglect in our community.
ACE Hardware of Carbondale, Alpine Bank, and Roaring Fork Furniture were the presenting sponsors and helped provide the food and activities for individuals and families to enjoy. Gabe Chenoweth with KMTS provided on-air interviews and coverage of the ceremony.
RBRC encourages the community to check out our website for information about upcoming presentations and events at www.riverbridgerc.org.
