Kemesha’s Kommunity conducts annual drives and projects which provide necessary items and essential goods to families in need (those living at or below the poverty line). Kemesha’s Kommunity also responds to urgent requests for support.
After years of giving back, Kemesha’s Kommunity was conceptualized in 2018 when Kemesha saw an opportunity to increase community engagement, and a need to organize her efforts to make her community better. Guided by her passion, vision, and genuine belief that we are all here to support one another, Kemesha launched her sponsor a family initiative. This lit a flame for her to do more to lift others up, and in 2020, Kemesha’s Kommunity received official 501(c)3 status.
