1. Litter Cleanup

Year round, KAB offers cleanup supplies for those who wish to help cleanup their neighborhood, park, or local green space on their own time – while following important safety guidelines. KAB asks that volunteer groups dispose trash on their own. 

KAB will provide trash bags, gloves, hand sanitizer and litter grabbers (2 maximum) to groups who wish to help their community by picking up litter.
