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.
