We are on a mission to raise $100,000 to feed over 3,000 Charleston Tri-County families for Thanksgiving this year. There is only 18 more days until the brigade and we need your help!

It only takes $30 to feed and entire family and every single penny you donate will go towards purchasing that family everything they need to cook the perfect Thanksgiving meal.

Then on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, November 26 we need volunteers to come out to the Charleston Area Convention Center Exhibit Hall A at 7:00 am to help us assemble meals and then hand deliver the meals to the families shortly after.

When a community comes together to make a difference, magic happens. Help us make magic and feed our neighbors in need!
