Fall is in the air and the Charleston Basket Brigade is gearing up for this year’s event on Tuesday, November 26th.
Since 2008, we’ve been assisting tri-county families in need on Thanksgiving by providing everything needed to cook a complete holiday meal. Our hope is that these families get a chance to come together, prepare and enjoy their Thanksgiving dinner while creating some magical moments with their loved ones.
We are eternally grateful for the generous support of local firms like Piggly Wiggly and Carolina One Real Estate. Their involvement allows the Basket Brigade to bring smiles and hope to tens of thousands of lowcountry children and their families.
AND, this year the Basket Brigade is extremely proud to announce that well known designer department store, Gwynn’s of Mt. Pleasant and Charleston real estate developer, The Wrenn Group have joined the humanitarian effort. We are so thankful and appreciative of their contribution to this year’s event.
Our big fundraiser this year is the annual knife sharpening at Coastal Cupboard the weekend of November 1-3. Gather all of your dull knives because for only $1 per knife, you can get your cutlery sharpened and help to feed local families in need at Thanksgiving all at the same time.
We’ve got to raise $90,000 this year to meet our goal of feeding over 3,000 families and we couldn’t do it without the help of the community and the generous donations of companies like Gwynn’s and The Wrenn Group. We are forever appreciative.
