We wanted to take a moment to introduce ourselves as the new editors for the CCDP Newsletter. Kandis Miller and myself, Patrick Boyle, will be in charge of sending out your weekly CCDP newsletter, and we are looking forward to providing information you can use to help improve your community. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any thoughts or suggestions.
Additionally, we wanted to take a moment to thank Zach Kronsberg for his service as CCDP Newsletter Editor. We are grateful for his years of work for Charleston County, as well as for his gracious assistance in getting us set up. We wish Zach all the best!
LET’S GET READY FOR NOVEMBER!
Results are still being finalized but we are excited to have a dynamic slate of candidates for offices throughout Charleston County and South Carolina. We are incredibly proud of the energy and ideas demonstrated during these past few months and we wish to congratulate all candidates for putting themselves forward and for enriching the democratic process. Thank you to all candidates!
We are also excited to begin to pivot our energies toward November! Our candidates want to meet with and hear from YOU. Please reach out if you would like to meet your SC house nominee, if you want information about upcoming events with our state and federal candidates, and/or if you are interested in volunteering for one of our county nominees. We are going to have a fantastic slate of candidates in November, but they will need YOUR help to get across the finish line.

|CCDP @2022 Charleston Pride Parade!|
That’s right! Charleston Pride Parade is back for 2022! CCDP is proud to support the LGBTQ+ community and join in on the festivities! We will have a decorated trailer, hand out candy, stickers and flyers, and let our Pride flags fly. We will gather at 8am at Wragg Mall by the Visitors Center, and the parade starts at 9.
This year the parade route is shorter and will just be down King St. from Ann St. to Market St. There will be limited seating for those that need it on the trailer, but otherwise, all participants will be walking as group along the route.
All participants will receive a free t-shirt. However, we are asking for a donation of $20 per shirt to cover our costs. Click here to donate towards shirts, decorating supplies, and giveaways.

Lowcountry Period Project Supplies Needed!

The project provides pre-made kits for homeless shelters and nurse’s offices at Title IX schools in the Lowcountry. These items are a luxury to homeless women and girls and many are forced to choose between hygiene and food. Please consider donating the following items so we can continue to support this amazing project!
-individually-wrapped feminine pads
-individually-wrapped panty liners
Thanks again for your generosity!
Our office has limited public hours due to COVID, but if you are dropping off donations, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a drop off time.
