Mens Day Wednesday

MEN'S DAY WEDNESDAY

Men’s Day Wednesday is a program that focuses on the importance of fathers and male role models in the lives of children.  Fathers have a significant and positive effect on their children’s lives.  There is a connection between father absence and social problems according to the National Fatherhood Initiative.  Children with an absent father are more likely to deal with poverty, teen pregnancy, juvenile delinquency, physical abuse, suicide, substance abuse, alcohol abuse, and more. 

United Way Diamonds teamed up with Golden Corral and Sweet Frog of Sumter to bring families and food together.  Eating regularly with family members reduces rates of substance abuse, teenage pregnancy and depression.  United Way, Golden Corral and Sweet Frog want to provde a place for families to come together, eat and succeed.  Remember to pick up your "coupon" card for Sweet Frog and Golden Corral during Men's Day Wednesday.
