While we recognize that many youths are privileged to have someone in their life who supports them, there are just as many children who do not have a male role model.With that, HMNK invites fathers, stepfathers, mothers, mentors, and all blended families to attend this year’s Father’s, Family, and Friends Cookout. This all-inclusive event brings together families, and organizations while providing participating males information on local opportunities to mentor youth.Join us for an afternoon of grilled food, music, games, prizes, snow cones, and more! It is guaranteed to be a good time for all!
