Mt. Pleasant, SC-based The Coastal Cupboard is sharpening knives for a good cause. The gourmet housewares retailer is charging $1 per knife or pair of scissors to sharpen and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Charleston Basket Brigade, a local organization that provides Thanksgiving meals to families in need. Now in its fifth year, the knife sharpening event starts on Nov. 5 and will continue through Nov. 8.
To date, the store has raised nearly $35,000 for Charleston based charities including East Cooper Meals on Wheels, Backpack Buddies, The Charleston Basket Brigade, Feed the Need, and more, according to the store.
