Last week, two youth at the Mayfield Youth Development Center spent their day learning about the cost of parenthood, all while helping their local community. The young men shopped around Walmart calculating the cost of diapers, formula, wipes, baby clothes, and shoes. The youth were given a budget or $300 to spend, and their total ticket price was $298.45! After shopping, the items purchased were donated to the Hope Center in Mayfield, KY. The Hope Center provides medical service, and material needs assistance to struggling parents. The registered nurse present (pictured in the center) talked with the young men about the importance of fathers being present in their child's life. The youth were able to learn valuable information from the trip while providing assistance to struggling parents in the Mayfield community.
