The Hinesville Hurricanes semi-professional football team will dedicate their next home game, scheduled for April 13, to Child Abuse Awareness month by admitting all children to the game for free.
The Hurricanes will face the Georgia Knights at 4 p.m. at Long Bell Stadium.
The Hurricanes recently donated their time at local schools, reading books to elementary students. The team has also raised awareness on victims of abuse in the past and held a charity game in Brunswick back in 2007 in honor of Christopher Michael Barrios, a child who was killed by his parents.
