The Great Shopping Cart Rescue!
July 22nd and July 23rd
Since last fall, KRB has been removing wayward shopping carts from our streams, bus stops, medians and parks — over 500 were removed at last count thanks to KRB’s efforts! Tom Kyle, KRB Board Member, will be hosting another “Great Shopping Cart Rescue” on July 22nd and 23rd. Volunteers will be gathering them up and returning them to their rightful owners (severely damaged ones head to Teplitz for recycling). If you have any tips about wayward shopping carts you may have spotted, please send them along: email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Results Are In
