CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Nearly 300 turkey dinners went home to Sea Island families on Tuesday.

Palmetto Brewing Company and the Pearlstine and Lipov families partnered together with Harris Teeter and the Charleston Basket Brigade to deliver the Thanksgiving dinners.

"I think we started right after Hurricane Hugo when there were so many people in need,” Edwin Pearlstine said. “We decided it was one thing we could do to help people.”

Thirty years later, the Pearlstine and Lipov families, which own Palmetto Brewing Company, are still distributing turkey dinners. They estimate they've given out thousands over the years.

“We have a lot to be thankful for,” Pearlstine said, adding he feels blessed to have his family continue the work he started.

The brewery's local distributor, Southern Eagle, also helped with meal delivery Tuesday. Linda Gadson, leader of Rural Mission said she’s thankful for the longstanding partnership.

"We've been blessed, these 30 years,” Gadson said. “You can see how much the people appreciate this opportunity to be a part of sharing and giving.

Gadson said the mission serves a rural community that needs support year round but holiday events, such as the turkey dinner giveaway, help.

"It's something for them to look forward to. They know that this day is coming, and they are going to be able to get some help,” Gadson said, “which makes a difference."

    The tallest points of downtown Charleston has shifted from steeple tops to towering cranes building the next high-rise. In downtown Charleston, the intersections of Meeting and Woolfe Streets to Meeting and Huger Street are only about a half mile apart. One apartment complex already exists in that area (Elan Midtown) and sits at 97% capacity with more than 200 units. Over the next year, four more apartment complexes will be built and opened.
