Issue 14, Volume 18.

TEMECULA – April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Child abuse is prevalent in the Valley and rising nationally at an alarming rate. The blue ribbon is the international sign for child abuse prevention and serves as a constant reminder that all of us have a responsibility to help keep helpless children safe.

Rancho Damacitas – a residential treatment center for at risk youth – is hosting a Kids First campaign to support the local homecare facility.

Three simple ways to participate in the Kids First campaign:

1. Display a small no-maintenance "Hope Box" in your place of business throughout the month of April for at will donations of any amount to support Rancho Damacitas or round-up at the register and donate the additional change.

2. Become a Blue Ribbon Partner – offer your customers a blue ribbon special that suits your type of business during the month Advertisement

of April – a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Blue Ribbon Special would be donated to Rancho Damacitas Childrens Homes.

3. Make announcements within your social media groups, place blue ribbons on your homes, tie them to your trees and car antennas, wear them and display them at your work place and places of business.

Located in the Temecula Valley, Rancho Damacitas Childrens Homes has been standing in the gap for children victimized by child abuse and neglect. Rancho Damacitas is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that facilitates physical and emotional healing, recovery, and a new beginning to children and youth ranging in age from six to eighteen.
