An upcoming annual May basket and flower tradition in Charlestown will support Team Charlestown 2014 in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, the Charlestown Neighborhood Watch announced

The effort is part of an annual tradition as part of which local residents hang a basket of spring flowers or small gifts on a neighbor's door knob without the neighbors seeing who dropped the items off, according to CNW. 

As such, from 4 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 30, local children can buy flowers, make cards and baskets to drop on neighbors' doorsteps on Thursday, May 1, according to CNW.

The flowers will cost $5 for one flower and $20 for five flowers. All proceeds will benefit Team Charlestown 2014, as will 20 percent of any cash-and-carry item purchased from the Bunker Hill Florist.
