It’s almost “GO” time!

Each year it seems that the time between Basket Brigade gets shorter and shorter. (Maybe that’s because we’re all getting older? LOL)

Regardless, this year’s event is upon us and we’ve upped the ante.

Our goal this year is to feed 3,500 families (That 21,000 people y’all) and to do it, we’ve got to raise $105,000.

Which leads in to something we’re super excited to share with you…

As you may or may not know, Carolina One Real Estate Services is our biggest partner. They are our largest source of volunteers and a vital part of our fundraising efforts. Check out the video below of our little ones working to make a difference for families less fortunate in our community.

We proudly present CORE KIDS CARE 2015!

As of today, we’re about a quarter of the way towards our goal and we’ve only got three more weeks to raise the money we need to pull this epic event off.

$30 is all it takes to feed a less fortunate family this Thanksgiving.   Your donation will go towards providing a complete Thanksgiving feast for those who would otherwise go without.  The meal includes: a 10-12 lb turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, green beans, corn, cranberry sauce, rolls and a pie.

There are lots of ways you can get involved…

For starters, please share the above video!

Sponsor a family or two (or three) and sign up to deliver.  Click here for more information on how to get involved.

The Coastal Cupboard Raises $4,002 for The CBB

knife sharpening thumbnailThousands of Charleston area residents brought in their knives to be sharpened at The Coastal Cupboard’s Semi Annual Charity Knife Sharpening Event to raise money for the Charleston Basket Brigade.  For just $1 per knife, guests got their knives sharpened at the store from October 30th through November 2nd which raised $4,002.00 for this year’s effort.

3Pitner said, “We had an overwhelming response for the Charity Knife Sharpening this year; it was awesome to see crowds of people lined up to sharpen their knives for such a great cause. We raised double the amount of money for the brigade this year!”

This is the third year that the Charleston Basket Brigade has been a beneficiary of The Coastal Cupboard Charity Knife Sharpening Event. Their support is invaluable to us and 133 families will enjoy a Thanksgiving meal thanks to their donation.

Thank you!
