Phoenix Children’s Hospital shines spotlight on child abuse
Arizona Central reports on Phoenix Hospital’s month of raising awareness on child abuse:
In the lobby of Phoenix Children’s Hospital, you will find a small collection of used and new shoes, each one telling a story.

All of the shoes have one theme in common: child abuse.
As part of Child Abuse Prevention Month, Phoenix Children’s Hospital is asking people to donate a pair of shoes in honor of a victim of child abuse for their Children’s March on Child Abuse event.
