Thanks to the support of the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Department, we were able to host a “Pick-Up” Thanksgiving Event on November 23rd. We provided a special pre-Thanksgiving meal with the help of Culinary Kreations, new KOP gear, and a special treat- sweet potato pie made by Ms. Stachia and her mom. YUM!! Wishing our entire KOP Family a blessed and healthy Thanksgiving!
A special thanks to our partners at The LowCountry Food Bank for providing turkeys. We are looking forward to seeing and tasting the finished products.
