Following the 2019 NRPA Annual Conference in Baltimore this past September, many exhibitors chose to generously donate materials to the Baltimore Convention Center (BCC) and Baltimore City Recreation and Parks (BCRP). This effort was facilitated by NRPA and is ongoing through the BCC as it attempts to ensure items are repurposed to keep them out of the landfill and to help organizations in need. The items donated included:
- Basketball rims and backboards by Bison, Inc.
- Metal bench and bike rack by Anova
- Dog ramp and pet caddy by Gyms for Dogs
- Crab picnic table by Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls
- In-ground trash can receptacle by Sybertech
- Two portable outdoor Ping-Pong tables by Cornilleau
- Chess picnic table and Inner Harbor-themed benches by UltraSite
- Baltimore crab bench by Kirby Built
- Trash receptacles by Victor Stanley
- Portable score board and rack by BSN Sports
- Sports equipment by Gopher Sports
- Live plants and trees by Rusty Oak Nursery
- Medicine ball rack by BSN Sports
- Tote bags and neck wallets to the BCC for food banks by NRPA
