In East Charlotte, artist and author KJ Green is sharing his “Jerry Drop” comic book series at local Little Free Libraries.
The Little Free Library program is a series of small free “libraries” that anyone can borrow from or contribute to. These Little Libraries can be found in many Charlotte neighborhoods. One such library sits in the driveway of Safe Hands Learning Center, which is located off of Sharon Amity on Vernedale Rd, behind old Eastland Mall property.
The newest addition to this little library, titled “Jerry Drop in: Quarantined,” is the latest edition of a comic book series by creator KJ Green, a middle school student from East Charlotte. Established in 2016, the “Jerry Drop” series uniquely chronicles the adventures of a group of water droplet characters. The series was inspired by an assignment KJ received in school.
KJ intends to share more of his books with the East Charlotte community by adding his comics to more little libraries for readers to discover. To be the first to know about Jerry Drop updates, email the author here: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Members of the Central Apostolic Faith Mission Health Ministry Team were out in the community taking blood pressures in the East Charlotte region of the Queen City. Members of the community were offered free blood pressure screening so they could “know their numbers” The CAFM Health Ministry Team will be partnering with several local businesses to support the community and promote healthy living choices. Their mission is to teach the public what their blood pressure range should be and offer useful information about maintaining a healthy lifestyle. On May 2 this team was able to set up at Food Lion #1365. They look forward to serving the local community at other area businesses in the near future. If your East Charlotte business or organization would like to have a blood pressure screening station set up for a local event please contact Central Apostolic Faith Mission.
