Join The Coastal Cupboard for a Charity Knife Sharpening event at its Belle Hall Shopping Center location from Friday, November 2nd, through Sunday, November 4.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday. Everyone in the Charleston area is invited to get their straight-edged knives professionally sharpened for a one dollar donation per knife, with all proceeds benefitting The Charleston Basket Brigade. The store is also offering free gourmet food tastings, a charity raffle booth and more. To accommodate the large crowds, the store has doubled the amount of knife sharpening stations.

The Charleston Basket Brigade is a local nonprofit organization with a commitment to bring the community together to provide Charleston Tri-County families with warm meals at Thanksgiving. It only takes $30 to feed a family of 4-6 and 100% of the donations go towards purchasing food. The meal includes a 10-12 lb. turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, cranberry sauce, a pumpkin pie, fresh rolls and butter. Each family receives an anonymous letter inside the basket that reads “This comes to you from someone who cares about you. All we ask is that you take care of yourself well enough to be able to do this for someone else one day.” This year the CBB has set a goal to raise $100,000 to feed 3,333 families (approximately 20,000 residents) at Thanksgiving.
