KAB Annual Programs

Keep Allen Beautiful (KAB) hosts community events each year that are designed to support our environmental and beautification goals. Several events are hosted in conjunction with annual educational activities and often include opportunities for volunteers to participate in community beautification efforts.

These events are promoted through a variety of City communication channels. Visit the Stay Connected page for subscription options to receive news and events. Contact Education Specialist Josué Diaz at 214.509.4555 for event and volunteer information.
