The Superhero Party is the first major event hosted by a partnership between the Springfield Area Parent Child Center (SAPCC) and the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center. This is an all-new family enrichment program for area youth and their families. Strengthening community, transforming families, enriching opportunities, and preparing children (STEP) are some of the goals of this collaboration.
The partnership between the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center and the SAPCC represents a growing trend in organizations joining together to provide opportunities for varying populations to benefit from the sense of community and connectedness. The joint effort will bring together children and families from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences to interact, learn, and socialize together on weekends and evenings.
This innovative new program is supported by funding from the Canaday Family Foundation, making participation accessible to all income levels.
