***Hi Everyone!

The Black Affinity and Student Council Block Love Charlotte is a local black-owned non-profit organization that’s vision is to “improve the quality of life for those individuals that suffer from homelessness, domestic violence, and single fathers; one block at a time in our communities”. 

Block Love Charlotte asks that we collect food such as snack crackers, cookies, fresh fruit, pop-top canned foods, soups, water, and other drinks. They also need tents, sleeping bags, and toiletries. If you choose to donate clothing, please limit your donations to jeans for men and women, underwear, long sleeve shirts, hoodies, light-weight jackets, sneakers/work boots, and blankets. Visit their website https://blockloveclt.org/about-us for more information and ways to help. 

Our supply drive will end on February 5th and the advisory that collects the most supplies will get a dress down day! If you have any questions, email me at aequan@cannonschool.org.

Please see this video.
