Caring for Our Communities
KAD Foundation is local organization with a global focus. Annually we show our love and how much we care by providing giveaways to youth and families in the Central Florida area as well as to partnering nonprofit organizations throughout the United States, Haiti, Dominican Republic and the Bahamas.

- Provide toiletries, new socks, long-sleeved shirts or a sweater and a blanket for homeless children, individuals and families.

Community Fun and Learn Day
Since 2004, KAD Foundation, corporate partners and health agencies have partnered together to provide free health screenings, check ups, legal resources and fun activities to over 5,000 residents in the 2 largest impoverished, high crime, health poor, and high infant mortality/teen pregnancy communities in Central Florida. This weekend event serves as a linkage between residents who do not have access to quality services and professional agencies. We provide referral services to individuals and families who need further assistance.
Breakfast-with-a-Bunny Easter Celebration
In April 2006, KAD implemented its’ annual Breakfast-with-a-Bunny Easter Celebration. KAD partners with 10 housing communities, Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCA, and Neighborhood Center for Families to provide a day of fun for the youth with Breakfast with a bunny, Easter egg hunting, games, prizes and music.
In 2004, KAD kicked off its’ annual back-to-school provides backpacks, school supplies, new clothing, shoes and healthy snacks to school-aged youth in the Central Florida area. Our extended service areas have included Dallas & Houston, TX; New Baltimore & Detroit, MI; Upper Marlboro & Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; New York City, NY; Jersey City, NJ; Raleigh-Durham & Goldsboro, NC; New Orleans & Shreveport, LA: Jackson, MS; Los Angeles, Murrietta San Bernandino & Riverside, CA; Richmond, VA; Pennsylvania; Atlanta, GA; Freeport, Bahamas, Haiti and Dominican Republic.
Afterschool Nutritious Snacks
Since 2007, KAD Foundation provides nutritional snacks to 1000 students weekly for two Orange County YMCA middle schools. We provide educational materials on healthy eating to combat childhood obesity. This new initiative has been well received among parents, teachers, volunteers and even the youth! Because of budget cuts and our growing concern for the youth not going hungry between early lunch and dinner, we have also partnered with the local YMCAs to provide after-school snacks for middle school youth in grades 6-8. The agencies have been very grateful.
In November 2003 we began our Thankful Blessing giveaway where we provide groceries and paper products including Thanksgiving Dinner to each of the families that have been adopted by the Foundation throughout the year. It is through the faithful giving of individual donors, corporate sponsors, nonprofit agencies and businesses that makes this possible.
A Christmas Wish
In December 2003, KAD began providing Christmas gifts to less fortunate youth and families. Join us to provide the gift to shoes, clothing and a toy to a child this Christmas!
The smallest things in life can make the biggest difference.
