Due to current circumstances with covid-19, our volunteer opportunities are limited. We feel strongly about protecting the health + safety of our volunteers and staff.
Please see below our two volunteer opportunities + how to get involved.
1. Beautification Watch Award Canvasser
*We currently have all routes full, but you can sign up to be on our cancellation list.*
BWA volunteers drive one of our pre-determined routes on their own time throughout the month of July and nominate homes + businesses for our Beautification Watch Award.
There are 45 routes that cover the entire City of Akron. Each route takes 2-4 hours to complete. Routes are only to be completed in the month of July and have to be turned in to KAB by Monday, August 3, 2020.
Beautification Watch Awards are our way of saying “thank you” to the homes and businesses that take pride in taking care of their property in the City of Akron.
If you would like to participate as a Beautification Watch Award Canvasser, click here to sign up.
We suggest participating in teams or groups to ensure everyone’s safety, as you will need to write down nominated addresses as you drive by them.
2. Litter Cleanup - Great American Cleanup®
At KAB, we typically participate in GAC during our annual Clean Up Akron Month (CUAM) every April.
Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel this year. Thankfully, Keep America Beautiful has rescheduled the GAC for June 15 – Oct. 18, 2020.
Now through October, KAB is offering cleanup supplies for those who wish to help cleanup their neighborhoods on their own time – while following important safety guidelines.
We will provide trash bags, gloves, hand sanitizer and litter grabbers (2 maximum) to groups of 10 or less who wish to help their community by picking up litter. KAB will not provide trash removal for these projects at this time.
Please wear PPE, practice social distancing and only participate in groups with others that are already in your inner circle.
