Edwardsville, IL-based Chef’s Shoppe Gourmet Kitchen recently donated more than $700 to The Backstoppers, a not-for-profit agency that helps the families of fallen heroes throughout the states of Missouri and Illinois. The donation was made possible by a charity knife sharpening event held at the store.
“Thank you to everyone who came out and brought your knives to be professionally sharpened with 100% of money collected going to support this great organization,” was posted on the store’s Facebook page.
Chef’s Shoppe Gourmet Kitchen is owned by Scott and Nancy Schneider and managed by Lisa Mulhall. The couple purchased the store in 2006.
