Cotton Candy for a Cause: BSU Holds Successful Fundraiser

October 29, 2021

It was just last year that four Black students had a dream to highlight Black voices and examine the experiences of the Black community. Student leaders came together to establish the first Black Student Union (BSU) offered at Moravian Academy in at least 40 years.

BSU strives to create an all-inclusive environment and welcomes any member of the community to our club. Our primary goal as a club is to educate people and create change.

We hit the ground running this 2021-2022 school year, surpassing our monthly fundraising goal, while bringing our community together. Whether you are a student, teacher, alum, or a member of our community you, have probably seen or heard about BSU through its many fundraisers.

We have been all over the Merle-Smith campus, selling Halloween candy bags and treats. Most recently, we had a cotton candy booth at the Country Fair. BSU was able to raise $1,700 during the month of October alone! Our profits will go to NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund, an organization that fights for racial justice through litigation, advocacy, and public education. Thank you to everyone who donated or purchased treats and supported us in reaching our goals!

 Look out for future events hosted by the BSU on the Merle-Smith Campus!
