- 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 reach our goal. In 2022, we partnered with Bay Ridge Wine & Spirits, Evolve Direct Primary Care, Ledo Pizza and Pasta of Annapolis, and Naptown Scoop to raise just over $30,000. Learn more about the 2022 Cash for Schools program, the schools, and our partners.
- The Capital Gazette Families Fund
After witnessing our community’s incredible strength following the tragic shooting at the Capital Gazette offices on June 28, 2018, we designed and offered stickers in exchange for donations to The Capital Gazette Families Fund. We bore the cost of the stickers so that 100% of the $1,584 in donations (and counting) go to the Fund. Stickers are still available with your donation, so please ask at the register.
- Flag Donations & Independence Day
To celebrate Independence Day, we partner with local organizations, including local Boy Scout packs and 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.
