ROCK Group to sponsor The Healing Field

CHATHAM COUNTY, GA (WTOC) - The Coastal Empire ROCK (Raising Our Children Kindly) Group will sponsor The Healing Field from March 25 until April 2. The Healing Field is created by planting an American flag for every reported case of child abuse in Chatham County. The theme this year  is "turning a field of hurt into a field of hope" and all the money raised will go to child abuse programs.

"We are so excited to be bringing this event back to Chatham County as our kick-off event to Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention Month in April," said ROCK Group Executive Director Penny Maggioni in a news release. "We hope we can get the entire community involved in this project."

The Healing Field will be located at the National Guard Amory on Eisenhower Drive. The goal this year is to transform the field of flags into a field of pinwheels. A donation of $50 sponsors a flag to be removed from the field.

"We are so excited to be bringing this event back to Chatham County as our kick-off event to Child Abuse Awareness & Prevention Month in April," added Maggioni. "We hope we can get the entire community involved in this project."

This is the fifth year the ROCK Group has sponosored The Healing Field.

They are still looking for corporate sponsors, individual and team sponsors. For more information, call the ROCK Group at 912.356.8404 or email director@coastalrockgroup.com.
