For the past two years The Kyndall Project has been helping thousands of young people in the Forsyth County area.  In an effort to expand her ever growing reach, Kyndall Williams has added the “Dream and Believe Team” to her nonprofit.

The Dream and Believe Team consists of five young women including Williams.  Nyla Smith, Ja’Nyia Fryer, Desiree Terrell and Julianni Terrell are the new additions to the team as they seek to help Williams achieve her goal of donating 1,000 backpacks at her third annual Back to School Jam this August.

April Reich, Kyndall’s mother, stated the reason for adding the team to The Kyndall Project is because it was becoming an arduous task for Kyndall to attempt to do everything on her own.

Each of the new team members mirrors Williams’ passion for helping others.  They will assist in the development of new programs for the nonprofit as well as helping with the collection of donations for the back to school jam.

“I like to help people and wanted to get involved to tell people about The Kyndall Project,” said Julianni Terrell. 

Fryer added, “I wanted to help and spread the word about everything we are doing.”

“I wanted to get involved because I felt like it was a smart thing she (Williams) came up with and since she needed some help I wanted to be there,” Desiree Terrell added.

To achieve their goal of 1,000 bookbags the young women say they have been reaching out to family, friends and classmates for donations.  They stated it feels great for them to give back to those who are in need especially when it comes to someones education.

According to Williams the creation of the Dream and Believe Team has been very beneficial in her efforts to fund raise, gather donations and creating new ideas. 

“At this year’s back to school jam we are giving away 1,000 bookbags this year which is a big goal compared to last year but we can do it,” said Reich  “We are also going to have free food, ice cream and vendors as well.”

Reich has said that she and her daughter keep God in mind with every venture they take on with The Kyndall Project.  They feel through blessing others they are blessing themselves.

The Kyndall Project wanted to thank their sponsors for all of their assistance in the Back to School Jam.  Food Lion, Walmart, Harris Teeter, Lowes Food, Volvo, Irie Rhythms restaurant, Eastern Star of Lexington and New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church among others have all contributed to the nonprofits efforts to contribute 1,000 bookbags to the community.

The Back to School Jam is scheduled for Aug.11 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at Rupert Bell Park.  Anyone wishing to donate should email Reich at thekyndallproject@nullgmail.com or visit the website at www.the kyndallproject.org.
