A donation of 20 items earns a VIP Parking Package at KP Hole Park ($20 value).

The top five donators win a free Kayak and Koffee trip down Rainbow River or Silver River ($50 value).

All donated items benefit Brother’s Keeper, Interfaith Emergency Services, and The Salvation Army.

The following drop-off locations are accepting donations:
