Community Development Center
Welcome to the Kempner Family CDC! We are a non-governmental, non-political, non-religious, private organization working to help better the local city and greater community of Kempner, TX.
The Kempner Family CDC has a number of ongoing projects that we organize, finance, or generally support. Since our mission is to help build the community, we are constantly on the lookout for new ways to serve our city and community.
The Sylvia Tucker Memorial Park is open daily and is a beautiful park. We try to get out a few times a week and pick up the extra trash people leave behind to keep it beautiful.
The Kempner United Methodist Church hosts a food bank for families in the area once a month. We provide food and gifts for them as well as Christmas gifts in December.
We started the first blood drive in Kempner in 2020, and will have hosted 4 such blood drives by the end of this year. We partner with Carter BloodCare, one of the most well-known and respected providers in the area, to provide blood donations to support area hospitals.
We chose to partner with Hyper Fusion Technologies out of Burnet, TX, to buy fiber cabling for the greater Kempner area. They already provide high-speed wireless communication to our area for many years, with multiple towers across Kempner; now we want to get Fiber internet to the people as well. We did this without any form of reciprocity from Hyper Fusion-- it is our gift to the city.
Once a year, we work to put on the only annual festival for out city. In 2020, we paid for several vendors, including our local KVFD, we paid for the band, and gave away multiple cash prizes.
We are planning on going bigger in 2021!!!
We are constantly supporting local charities and non-profits with fundraising events. From Eagle Scouts, to our Fire Department, to supporting toy drives, we help when we can.
