Event description

Description

Seeds of a Father is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that works to raise the honorable significance of fatherhood and has had a profound effect on the lives of children, fathers and families in Springfield and neighboring cities across Hampden County. Research indicates that positive Father/child engagement has a deep impact on child development and on the overall well-being of children. Father involvement reduces poverty, poor social emotional behaviors and increases academic achievement in the lives of children. We work continuously to bring awareness and the significance of fatherhood and educate individuals and organizations on solution oriented approaches to strengthen the family structure. Seeds of a Father Inc. collaborates with other local and national organizers to exemplify cohesion among men, women and children to promote healthy partnerships and to build strong lasting community connections. Our work has helped families, agencies and organizations become better equipped to engage Fathers, ultimately empowering their ability to support families as a whole more effectively.

We invite 100 Fathers / Father figures who are Willing to Acknowledge the Love that they have for their Kids (W.A.L.K) to walk with us in the 19th Annual Dad's Make a Difference Parade. The first 100 Fathers / Father figures to register with us will earn a free Seeds of a Father t-shirt (please note only one t-shirt per registration). Over the past two years Seeds of a Father has happily registered nearly 300 fathers / father figures to walk and join us in the Dads Make a Difference Parade and festivities.

*All of our events throughout the year are free and open to the public as we graciously depend on the generosity of our community to help us serve others. Please make a donation to our cause https://www.gofundme.com/walksoaf

*Please email me at Kevingreen.soaf@gmail.com with the size of your t-shirt Subject: Walk it Out

Thank for all your support,
