Although you live in an apartment in Mooresville, NC , that does not mean you can’t have a garden and grow flowers, plants, vegetables and herbs. Spring flowers and vegetables grow great in a container garden too. Spruce up your balcony, and add color to your home with flowers and vegetable plants. When you do, you can also bring awareness to child abuse.
April is Child Abuse Awareness Month, and just in time for spring, Lake Norman residents can purchase seeds from United Family Service to help raise awareness about an issue affecting thousands of children in Mecklenburg County each year.
In honor of Child Abuse Awareness Month, the Lake Norman office of the nonprofit organization recently partnered with Lowes to sell seeds to the community throughout April.
As you plant flowers, herbs and vegetables in your container garden this spring, think about children and families impacted by child abuse, and about the support United Family Services offers those children.
The United Way is hopeful that the Seeds of Hope campaign will have a major impact on preventing child abuse in the Lake Norman area.
