Kids4Community was founded by young community organizer Kenan Pala with the help of friends and family. Kenan’s primary goal was to encourage other children his age and younger (like his brother) to get involved in their communities. Kenan’s first major charitable project was setting the Guinness World Record for largest mosaic created using cardboard boxes in 2016. Together, he and his fellow students did a food drive to collect cereal boxes and then put them together to set a record that is officially recognized by Guinness using cereal boxes destined for a local food bank.
