Here at the Century Career Center, the students are in midst of a project to help out mothers in need. The project began as an idea and the students turned it into a mission. A mission to help as many people as possible.
After research they discovered that, in Logansport, approximately 20% of families are single parents, which may not seem all that extreme. On the other hand, however, 40% of residents haven’t started a family, so we must consider the ratio of single parents to full households. There is also an average of three people per single family household, based on worldpopulationreview.com. There is also a 43% child dependency ratio that goes along with this and over 2,000 children in our county under the age of 4. They feel that these numbers need to be considered and addressed to better our community and the residents. This is why we want to propose creating baby baskets full of supplies for expecting parents that need assistance.
In these baby baskets, we want to include many of the essentials to help these parents get on their feet after leaving the hospital. Some of the aforementioned supplies include diapers, baby wipes, baby shampoo, lotion, Desitin, pacifiers, onesies, etc. They will donate all of these items already distributed in diaper bags to be ready to go to the specific families.
Your donations through this GoFundMe are going directly to the baskets and will be gifted to the hospital to be given as seen fit. This amazing fundraiser, run by students, will benefit our community in more ways than just the baby bags. You are also showing us, as young adults, the value and importance of giving back.
You can donate by navigating to the GoFundMe webpage and searching “Century Career Center Helping Hands“. Thank You for being part of this amazing opportunity!
