The Colorado Springs location of Kitchen Tune-Up is owned by Bruce and Lori Morgan. The duo partnered with their nephew, Cameren Farr, for his Eagle Scout project, which was making benches for the Alzheimer's Association. The Kitchen Tune-Up location volunteered use of their building and equipment in order to make the benches. Around 25 volunteers helped make benches, all of which will be used at events for the Alzheimer's Association.

Kitchen Tune-Up franchisee Marty Ceranec has been working for 30 years with the Humanitarian Service Project, a charity with the mission to alleviate the pain and suffering that poverty brings to seniors and children in DuPage and Kane counties, IL.

Along with both of those, Marty is involved with Children's Birthday Box Project, where he sponsors 12 children so they can receive an annual birthday box including games, toys, stuffed animals and a "Party-in-a-Bag," which includes all birthday party essentials.
