KB Home Delivers Holiday Meals, Cheer to Youth and Social Workers
RIVERSIDE COUNTY— KB Home continued its mission of building and strengthening communities over the holidays by donating Thanksgiving holiday meals to Riverside County social workers and youth in foster care. The meals were prepared by a chef at a local country club.
“Our wish is for every social worker and every child to be safely home for the holidays,” said John Fenn, President of KB Home’s Inland Empire division. “KB Home is grateful to Riverside County social workers for putting children first, and we are honored to bring holiday cheer to local youth in need.”
As a business that is driven by the importance of providing a safe and secure place to call home, KB Home and its philanthropic program, KB Cares, are committed to helping those in challenging circumstances. That’s why the company believes that every action it takes — from how it supports its communities to how it cares about the planet — has the potential to make a meaningful positive impact. KB Cares represents the heart and soul of how this spirit is put into action.
The company has been a longtime supporter of programs that serve families and children in Riverside County. Over the past decade, an annual golf tournament sponsored by the Inland builder has raised more than $2.2 million for the Riverside University Health System (RUHS) Foundation. The Moreno Valley–based medical center is home to the Riverside County Child Assessment Team (RCCAT), which provides forensic exams and interviews to children who have experienced abuse and neglect.
Charity Douglas, assistant director of Riverside County Department of Public Social Services, Children’s Services, said that the support of community partners such as KB Home is essential to developing the best outcomes for children and families. Douglas added that social workers, who respond around the clock to children and families in crisis, also appreciate the outpouring of support.
“We are so appreciative to KB Home for their generosity and long-standing service to Inland Empire families,” Douglas said. “It truly takes a village, and we are very grateful that KB Home is part of our village.”
