Get a helping hand: Mi Casa | My Community

Wherever we are most needed, our team and partners will be there with the Mi Casa | My Community program!

KENS5.com Staff

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, strengthening local communities is at the heart of what we do. While there are some core programs and causes that we have supported for many years, KENS 5 is also committed to looking for under-served causes where we believe that our resources and talents can really make a difference. It is this passion for service that is the essence behind our community initiatives at KENS 5.

The Mi Casa Makeover program was another example of our service in the community where we renovated homes in dire need of repair. But in an effort to support our growing community, we've taken Mi Casa Makeover to another level with Mi Casa │ My Community! The program has transformed beyond the physical structure of MI CASA home repairs and evolved to incorporate MY COMMUNITY by focusing on the needs of non-profit organizations. This allows us to help more people every month!

Wherever we are most needed, our team and partners will be there — to clean up parks, remodel playgrounds, donate sports equipment or redesign ramps for the disabled. 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:
