West Valley’s D.A.D! Program

On Wednesday, November 20th, TOPS West Valley kicked off its new D.A.D! (Developing Awesome Dads!) program with an evening of invaluable resources, pizza, and DAD’S Rootbeer! Guests from WIC, College America, Glendale Community College, West MEC, and Grand Canyon University were on site to provide information and guidance on application and financial aid, etc. Conrad Lindo, currently with First Things First, and formerly Director for the AZ Center for Responsible Fatherhood, spoke to the dads about the 5 core values of being a father and the importance of being a positive presence in their children’s lives no matter the relationship with mom.  Every TOPS dad who attended was entered into a drawing for gift cards to AMC or SkyZone, and one lucky guy walked away from the event with a signed NFL football compliments of the Arizona Cardinals and Sam Acho! Also, every dad who was already enrolled in the D.A.D! program, or who was already signed up, received a bundle of 40 diapers! It was a great event and thank you to everyone who attended and to each of our community representatives. We couldn’t have done it without you!
