Rockwall Businesses, Restaurants Prepare to Paint the Town Blue

(ROCKWALL, TX- Feb. 28, 2019) In anticipation of National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, the Children’s Advocacy Center for Rockwall County is leading the charge to raise awareness and prevent child abuse by encouraging the community to #GoBlueForKids.
