Midwest Knifemakers Supply has started a relief fund to help Texas-based knife makers affected by Hurricane Harvey. “Those makers that depend on knife making as their primary income can use our help as a community,” says Tracy Mickley, Owner of Midwest Knifemakers Supply. “This is about doing the right thing and about helping people in need.”
The company is collecting and matching donations, up to a total of $2,000, and redistributing them as $250 gift cards for their online supply store, USA Knife Maker. Each card will go to a full-time knife maker in Texas who has been affected by Harvey to help them replace materials lost in the storm.
The fund has already reached over half of its goal. Although Mickley is only able to match up to $2,000, all donations exceeding that number still go towards additional gift cards. Mickley is also accepting donations of knife making materials to pass along, and makers across the world are preparing custom knives to be auctioned or otherwise sold to raise additional funds in the long days of recovery to come.
