Administrators of a Columbia program for at-risk kids want to increase their enrollment.
"King's Kids" is a summer camp for children ages 5 to 12.
Itâ??s part of the Youth Empowerment Zone organization that helps teenagers find jobs.
The program has limited space for 16 children with a waiting list of more than 2 dozen.
Administrators want to improve their existing building and expand to another location through donations.
YEZ administrator Lorenzo Lawson said, â??If there is anyone out there that wants to donate to us a building or some houses or something, then we can expand.â??
Lawson wants to eventually expand the program to include children under the age of 5.
