KENS 5 believes every community deserves a helping hand. We know how important it is to inspire community service and bring hope to those in need.
From Million Summer Meals to Bill’s Elves, we’ve been making a positive impact in our community for many years. Our Mi Casa Makeover program was another example: We renovated 35 homes in San Antonio that were in dire need of repair. It is this passion for service that is the essence behind our community initiatives at KENS 5.
In an effort to support our growing community, we're taking Mi Casa to another level with Mi Casa │ My Community! This endeavor will evolve the program beyond the physical structure of MI CASA and home repairs, and expand it to MY COMMUNITY by allowing us to help more people every month.
Wherever we are most needed, our team and partners will be there — to build parks, remodel playgrounds, donate sports equipment, redesign ramps for accessibility, or fix a roof. The possibilities are endless. While some of our assistance will be planned in advance based on community solicitation, others may be fluid as the need arises.
We thank our partners for helping to make this program possible:
The KENS 5 Great Day SA team and generous sponsors will be changing the lives of people right here in San Antonio through Mi Casa │ My Community.
