Our community is saddened by the loss of Brock Blick. While Brock did not attend Clarksville Academy, many of our students knew Brock and his family and want to show their support in his memory. CA’s Fellowship of Christian Athletes is spearheading a drive for donations for the Humane Society. The Blick family has requested that Brock’s memory be honored in this way. The drive will be this week, Monday, January 23, through Friday, January 27. Monetary donations will also be accepted. Please see Debbie Turnage when turning this in.

The following items were shared with us by the Humane Society as needed items:

  • Dog and Cat Food
  • Paper Towels
  • Heavy Duty Lawn/Leaf Bag
  • Bottled Water
  • Permanent Markers (all colors & sizes)
  • Manila Envelopes (any size)
  • Printer Address Labels
  • White Copy Paper
  • Gift Cards (PetSmart, Pet Food Center, Walmart, Sam’s, Amazon, etc.)

These items may be dropped off in the front foyer of the main building. Thank you for your support.
