CPN's "Blue Around Town"

Support local businesses and help to raise awareness in the community about child abuse prevention. 

This fundraising event brings awareness to child abuse prevention and helps CPN raise funds to provide financial resources to local agencies that support the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect.


Visit our Blue Around Town Featured Business Partner and order their specialty blue or blue-themed item(s) during the specified month. A portion of the proceeds will be donated back to CPN.

To help spread the word and create awareness, we are encouraging participants to snap a pic of your purchase and/or the establishment and upload on social media with #cpnbluearoundtown.

Interested in being a Blue Around Town business partner?

Participation from your local restaurant or food establishment can provide funds to local agencies that support the treatment and prevention of child abuse and neglect. In addition, the visibility from your business will help promote the Child Protection Network in the community and start a conversation on how we can improve the lives of local children.

If you are a restaurant or bar that would like to participate, contact Erin Jennings at ejennings@mcleancpn.org for more information.

Stop the abuse, start the conversation.
