A few years ago, we launched a new project that allowed through the support of the ForeverDads Board of Directors, staff, and Friends of ForeverDads to support dads during Christmas. Thus, Adopt-a-Dad was birth through the efforts Nick Lyons.
Each year, fathers are selected based on program participation, family engagement opportunities, and dads commitment of his family. With staff assistance, each dad goes shopping for his children, the mother of his children....yes, and even for himself for Christmas gifts. They return back to ForeverDads then to wrap the gifts they have purchased. At a date closer to Christmas, they make another trip to grocery store to purchase food that helps them over Christmas break and for that special day dinner.
The generosity of Chuck and Sue Bell ignited ForeverDads to keep this project alive, and in return for our thanks, it has been dedicated to them - the Chuck & Sue Bell Adopt - a - Dad project.
This year already, Friends Of Putnam have supported this project with their generous donation. We invite you to join them and others as we continue this annual tradition.
A Few Words
Within every young man lies the potential of exceptional fatherhood. At ForeverDads, our goal is to strengthen communities in Muskingum County and beyond, helping transform them into places that provides our sons with the resources and role models necessary to become loving, nurturing, responsible fathers.
