Yes, we build buildings and develop property, but we also want to build a better community. That’s why KDC puts an emphasis on community support, patriotism, and wellness, and our employees participate in several philanthropic activities throughout the year.
Carry the Load
Carry the Load aims to honor veterans and active duty service members, first responders, and their families by helping to restore the true meaning of Memorial Day. The organization sponsors marches and rallies held each Memorial Day. KDC employees participate and volunteer at the annual event in Dallas, and the company sponsors a refreshment aid station along the route that participants run or walk.
North Texas Food Bank
KDC supports the North Texas Food Bank by participating in the organization’s Food 4 Kids program. Many elementary students on the free and reduced-price lunch program often face hunger over the weekend. The Food 4 Kids program provides these children with backpacks full of non-perishable, kid-friendly food for them to take home on Friday. Approximately 11,000 students in Dallas, Denton, Collin, Rockwall, and Fannin counties receive food each weekend during the school year.
Builders of Hope
KDC employees help build and repair homes around Dallas as part of the Builders of Hope program, a Christian ministry transforming Dallas urban areas by helping develop healthy neighborhoods and quality, affordable housing.
American Heart Association Heart Walk and Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure
In an effort to promote wellness and support valuable community and health organizations, KDC employees participate in the annual American Heart Association Heart Walk and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
Rise School of Dallas
The Rise School of Dallas provides the highest-quality, early-childhood education services to children with Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities and to children without disabilities. To support this important effort, KDC employees participate in the school’s annual 5K walk and run and other fundraisers throughout the year.
