SICPP 9th Annual Fatherhood Fun Day

On Saturday June 15th, the SICPP hosted its 9th annual Fatherhood Fun Day event at Cloves Lake Park. The Fatherhood Fun Day event celebrates and honors the critical role that fathers play in their children’s lives. In fact, this is the only event of its kind throughout New York City. Nearly four hundred families attended the day with neighbors, while learning about their community and receiving information about the many services the SICPP members provide.

The SICPP Fatherhood Fun Day Committee consists of: Kevin Squires, Metro Plus Health Plan, Josephine Marino, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield Health Plus, Emanuel Bloomfield, College of Staten Island of the City University of New York and Vernon “Dyverse” Wooten, Fatherhood Matters.
