Canon is a member of “The Model of Leadersip” class at the school which started a school-wide two-week food and money drive in early November. On November 19 the young men held a collection ceremony in the BC High gym where all the money and food were gathered from the various homerooms.

Canon with the Models of Leadership class then went to the Boston Housing Authority and helped sort the food and learned about the BHA and section 8 housing. The BHA employees and the 17 BC High students were the sole providers in feeding more than 300 families.
