KAB In the News – August 2022

STAMFORD, Conn. (August 2022) – This month, Keep America Beautiful is introducing a new communications initiative: KAB In the News. Each month, we’ll be publishing a list of stories from across America that feature the work of Keep America Beautiful and its 700 affiliates. Every day, we are tracking articles, stories, and mentions about the efforts of the thousands of staff members and volunteers who make Keep America Beautiful the nation’s leading community improvement organization.

We feel it’s important to gather these where they are easily accessible in one space, to share with our supporters and those interested in knowing more about KAB. We will update this page every day.

If you are an affiliate and have a story to add to this list, please email Director of Communications, Abby Turpin, at aturpin@kab.org.
