Kids4Community Founder, Kenan Pala (age 13), coordinated a Hurricane Harvey Relief Drive in San Diego on Friday, September 1st.

Kenan went on to organize a similar drive for victims of Irma, only two weeks after his efforts for Harvey victims. Prior to hurricane season, Kenan landed himself a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records, for creating the largest cardboard box mosaic. He used more than 4,000 donated cereal boxes to create a giant floor graphic to promote awareness of homelessness.
