Dads for a day

Be Part of Dads For A Day at Lake Weir Middle School

Are you a male looking to make a difference in the lives of local children?


Hope Lutheran Church men will be partnering with Kipp Hayes, Executive Director of Dads for a Day, along with members of Fairway Christian Church, Encounter Church and other local Churches, to change the lives of children in need.

There will be an informational meeting at Lake Weir Middle School on Tuesday, August 16 at noon. There, you can meet the new Principal Jason Jacobs, learn about the program, get all your questions answered, and get needed forms if you decide to volunteer. If you have questions, please contact Fred O'Brien at (352) 250-3814 or by email at


Dads for a Day strives to provide a positive male presence in the local schools that will assist teachers and administrators with the student population. Lake Weir Middle is seeking local male community members to join our mission to ensure a safe and orderly learning environment for all students. Helping is easy! Simply show up throughout various times of the day and simply be seen and positively interact with our learners. Dads For A Day members can take shifts throughout the week. The neediest times around campus are morning arrival, lunches, and afternoon dismissal.
