(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A local non-profit organization wants to spread awareness about child abuse in the community.

On Friday, Voices of Courage wore the color blue to encourage people to stand up and take action against child abuse.

"It's really important to us that we bring awareness to the topic because a lot of times the topic is something not a lot of people want to talk about or even acknowledge that it goes on," Sarah Harden, Voices of Courage, said. 

According to Childhelp.org, each year 6.6 million children are involved in a child abuse referral. 

To report a case of child abuse, call 1-800-392-3738.

We are waking up to some patchy fog this Monday morning. The weather does quiet down to begin the work week but temperatures will be heating up as we go into Monday and Tuesday.
