KMG strives to be a good community partner, participating in various community programs through many of our locations around the world. We know that by being a good steward to the communities in which we work, we help not only KMG, but those around us. Among the events we’ve participated in recently are:
SafeHaven Back-to-School Supply Drive
SafeHaven is the largest and most comprehensive agency in Tarrant County, Texas providing services at no cost to domestic violence victims. SafeHaven provides 24-hour care at two emergency shelters in Arlington, Texas and Fort Worth, Texas to families fleeing violent situations. The Back-to-School Supply Drive helps children living in SafeHaven shelter start their school year with the school supplies they need to succeed.
As the largest multi-event race in North Texas, The Cowtown celebrated its 40th year of running in 2017. KMG was proud to be a sponsor of this event benefiting low-income children in North Texas.
Victory over Violence (5K Run)
All proceeds benefit the anti-violence programs of The Women’s Center of Tarrant County, Texas. The Women’s Center serves over 130,000 people annually through counseling, employment and educational programs. The Victory Over Violence Walk/Run raises funds to help victims of sexual assault, abuse, and other violent crimes heal emotionally and resume productive lives.
Fort Worth Cowtown Brush Up (Habitat for Humanity)
The City of Fort Worth considers diversity and vitality of neighborhoods among its most valuable assets. To help keep neighborhoods vital, the Cowtown Brushup program paints 50 homes every October and April on a first-come, first-served basis. The community program is a volunteer-driven effort to help restore homes in need of exterior paint.
Angel Tree Program (holiday toy donations)
Along with the familiar Red Kettles, the Angel Tree program is one of The Salvation Army’s highest profile Christmas efforts. Angel Tree was created by The Salvation Army in 1979 by Majors Charles and Shirley White when they worked with a Lynchburg, Virginia shopping mall to provide clothing and toys for children at Christmas time.
Cook Children’s Hospital (Easter basket donations)
Nearly a century ago, the first children’s hospital in Fort Worth opened with 30 beds and a Promise to provide every child in the area access to medical care. From these humble beginnings Cook Children’s has grown to become one of the largest and most recognized freestanding children’s health care systems in the southwest with over 1 million patient encounters each year through our more than 60 pediatric medical offices and specialty clinics.
