Male mentors needed, and found

Pastor Don Parish Jr. did not have very high expectations when he put out a plea on Facebook for male mentor volunteers. Billy Earl Middle School in south Dallas, Texas, was having its first "Breakfast with Dads" event, but administrators knew many students would not have dads present. Many have no male figures in their lives.

Parish said he hoped his Facebook plea would attract 50 male mentors. On the morning of the breakfast, 600 men from all walks of life lined up outside the school. The men and the kids bonded very quickly, especially after they shared a "How to tie a tie" exercise.
