What is Shades of Love LKN?
Shades of Love LKN is an official 501(c)3 non-profit community organization. The organization was founded in 2016 in an effort to promote inclusivity within the community regardless of what shade a person may be. Shades of Love LKN has accomplished many community projects helping those in need and was voted the 2017 Best Community Service Organization in Lake Norman!
Some of the community service projects and programs include but are not limited to include Feed a First Responder, where the community came together to feed all the firefighters, police officers, and EMS over the Christmas holiday weekend a full course meal. A local school was adopted and over 450 pair of brand new shoes and socks were given out to those in need. The 2018 Annual event included providing 100 personalized backpacks stuffed with school supplies and personal hygiene products to local kids in need. The 2019 Annual Event provided over 400 backpacks with school supplies and personal hygiene kits to local kids in need.
Other efforts have included supply drives for the local Christian Mission, Soup Kitchen, the devastation in Puerto Rico, and many other community foundations. Shades of Love LKN is all about spreading kindness, and teaching our community to be doers, to be the change and start where you are, with what you have. Every single person has the ability to change someone’s life, you just have to dig deep and find it.
The annual event serves as the yearly fundraiser and promotes diversity in the community, celebrates community accomplishments, and recognizes our amazing service men and women who strive to better our community. Each year the event has averaged 300+ participants including families in the area, local law enforcement, EMS, firefighters, elected officials, local small businesses, food, face painting, live entertainment, and more! Money raised from this event is used to help fund the community projects and programs provided to the community from the organization.
This year’s event will provide much needed school supplies, backpacks, personal hygiene kits, and more all to families in need in our area. We will be collecting donations to help provide local schools with assistance for school lunch accounts as well as other important programs within the school system to help improve the overall quality for all children within.
In addition to all the giving we will be doing at the annual event- we will be having LOTS of FUN! We will have lots of local businesses set up, activities for families and kids, and more! So bring the whole family and be ready to have some fun!
