ALEXANDRIA, Va., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) connects deeply with Father's Day—both were founded in 1910, and both recognize the importance of a strong and loving father within a family. As in years past, CCUSA is offering eCards as a way for individuals to express appreciation for their fathers while simultaneously supporting the importance of fatherhood in our society. Sending an eCard is simple yet impactful; the donation from each card will help support Catholic Charities agencies in their poverty reduction work around the country.
"While this holiday reminds us of the essential role fathers play in families and communities, these men are often forgotten when it comes to public policies and programs," said Rev. Larry Snyder, president of CCUSA. "We strive to support fathers and encourage all efforts that develop stronger relationships between fathers and their families."
Catholic Charities is one of the nation's largest human service organizations, helping more than 10 million people of all faiths every year. Catholic Charities' local agencies across the country strive to help disadvantaged fathers each day, implementing special fatherhood programs that focus on professional skill development, health and wellness, financial skills, and the need to be emotionally, psychologically and socially involved in the lives of children.
