Community Involvement

From the very start, Kemmons Wilson Companies has demonstrated a dedication to community involvement and support. Committed to making our communities a better place for everyone, we encourage our associates to volunteer at causes that are important to them. And as a company, we organize community service projects for our associates to participate in as a team.

Partners in Community (PIC) program
Every two years, KWC associates select two non-profit entities for financial, in-kind and volunteering support. The organizations are invited to participate and must fit KWC’s giving focus. The final selection is made by an employee-run committee.

2015 – 2016
Agape will serve children, families and communities by sharing God’s love throughout the Mid-South. With excellence, we will connect people to God’s mission by uniting children with loving families, strengthening homes and communities with intentional relationships, and linking servants to service.
