- Cash for Schools – Thank you for your donations!
This is a popular and great way to raise money for local schools. For every dollar contributed by our customers, K&B True Value matches it. Annually, from the beginning of the school year through October 31, we support local public and private schools by matching donations, dollar for dollar, until we reached $5,000. In 2021, we partnered with Bay Ridge Wine & Spirits, Soul, and Ledo Pizza and Pasta of Annapolis to raise the matching funds to $15,000 and the total donation to over $30,000.

- Flag Donations & Independence Day
To celebrate Independence Day, we partner with local organizations, including local scout troops, to place thousands of flags in local neighborhoods to bring about cheer and patriotism. K&B also collects flags to be appropriately retired. Retiring a frayed or damaged flag is something that should be done with care and honor. Scouts are trained on how to conduct this special ceremony, and we offer a free service of collecting torn or frayed flags to present them to a local scout troop who will continue the tradition.
- The Capital Gazette Families Fund
After witnessing our community’s incredible strength following the tragedy at the Capital Gazette offices, we designed and offered stickers in exchange for donations to The Capital Gazette Families Fund. We bore the entire cost of the stickers so that 100% of the $1,584 in donations (and counting) go to the Fund. More stickers are still available with your donation, so please ask at the register.
