Community Service

KMI has always worked to impart and reflect the value of ‘doing for others’ in its programming. Our youth have been involved in many community service projects throughout the years. Some examples include…

  • A roofed  kiosk at Shell Island for the Audubon Society and New Hanover County  to provide information regarding the nesting shorebird sanctuary at the north end of Wrightsville Beach
  • Surfboard Medallions for Surfer’s Healing
  • Flowerboxes for elderly public-housing residents
  • Trellises for The Ability Garden at the New Hanover County Arboretum
  • Portable Display Stands for the New Hanover County Arboretum
  • 26 raised gardening beds for public-housing neighborhoods
  • Scooters, soapbox racers and custom-turned pens for local charity auctions
  • Raised planter boxes with bench seating for downtown Wilmington
  • Bench seating for the New Hanover County Juvenile Day Treatment Center
  • Garden Benches for the New Hanover County Arboretum
  • Outdoor Gates for the Wilmington Friends Meeting House

KMI also serves as a community service placement site for New Hanover County Youth Empowerment Service for youth who have court-ordered community service hours to perform.
