McLarty Daniel is a 2022 Sponsor of The Children’s Advocacy Alliance of Benton County, Arkansas.

April 8th, 2022 by

McLarty Daniel Automotive is proud to announce that we have teamed up with the Children’s Advocacy Alliance of Benton County as a 2022 Signature Pinwheel Sponsor to raise awareness for child abuse right here in Northwest Arkansas. During the month of April, across the nation and throughout our local community, thousands of brightly colored, shining pinwheels adorn the lawns of local businesses and agencies, including four of our Bentonville locations.

Drive by any McLarty Daniel location in Bentonville this month, and you’ll see colorful pinwheels spinning in the wind – colorful reminders of the ongoing scourge of abuse and neglect that damages so many children and young people. The pinwheels will be displayed at McLarty Daniel Ford Lincoln, Nissan, Buick GMC, and Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.

The month of April is recognized as National Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month. Many of our employees have young children at home, so this cause is very important to us, especially since the state of Arkansas ranked number one in the country for the number of adverse childhood experiences.

Opened on January 10, 2000, the Children’s Advocacy Center of Benton County, also known across the state as CAC, has long provided a safe place to abused children under the age of 18 in a supportive, child-friendly environment. Abused children and their family members can receive the support they need to heal through many of the CAC’s comprehensive services. These include:

  • A child-friendly and non-threatening environment
  • Trained forensic interviewers (bilingual services available)
  • Specialized Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner and an on-site medical exam room
  • Child advocates to assess family needs and provide follow-up, support, and referral services
  • On-site counselors available to meet with the child and non-offending family members

All of these services are provided free of charge to the families who seek them by dedicated professionals such as interviewers, nurses, and even advocates.

Here at McLarty Daniel Automotive, we’re proud to support an organization that does so much to help vulnerable and abused children in our area. CAC helps break the cycle of abuse so these victims can heal through their services, care and support.
