Ken’s Krew gears up for upcoming fashion show fundraiser
On Sept. 12 Ken’s Krew held a kickoff breakfast at Wegman’s in King of Prussia. Ken’s Krew is an organization that enables and trains individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to successfully enter the workforce. Since 1997 nearly 300 individuals have been trained and placed in jobs. The breakfast took place so parents and employer representatives could discuss the event details of their upcoming fashion show to be held on Oct. 21 as well view a movie on the Ken’s Krew Inc. Ken’s Krew will host “Stepping Out,” an event that features affordable fall fashions from Boscov’s in Plymouth Meeting, offer raffle prizes and feature a special appearance by CBS3’s Nicole Brewer as Mistress of Ceremonies. With the help of employment partners like Home Depot, VS, Outback, Wegmans and Fairway Food Markets, Ken’s Krew is able to provide jobs in turn and add meaning and purpose to the lives of these individuals.
