The Community Renewal Kids' Clubs have provided students with opportunities to interact with business leaders, participate in community service projects, and experience the real world beyond their own neighborhood and community. Club leaders have been outstanding role models for students.

Community Renewal is an organization that is trying to create a sense of unity within our community.  In a time where technology, politics, and disagreements take away the energy of most people, Community Renewal is helping remind everybody that we need to truly get to know each other and look out for one another.  Community Renewal is helping remind us all that we must love one another and when we do that our community will become stronger.

Community Renewal is poised to dramatically change our community through the simple act of loving and caring for our neighbors.
