Dallas School Needed 50 Volunteer "Dads" And They Got 600 Instead

All the feels.

Rev. Donald Ray Parish Jr. tells NBCDFW that they were asked to get a few extra guys to go to the event to serve as surrogate fathers or mentors to boys whose fathers couldn't make it, or don't have a dad in their lives.


So they put out a call on Facebook. Word spread quickly, and there were so many volunteers signing up online, that the website actually crashed.

One of the guys who attended said he answered the call to attend the event because it was important for him to give back.

"In my life, I had men around me that always gave me an opportunity and provided me with support so I just wanna do the same thing."
