The Firebox Initiative
We exist to assist those facing crisis within our own industry and community. We are a 501(c)3 not-for-profit committed to providing emergency financial assistance to food service workers experiencing financial pressures due to unanticipated and unavoidable circumstances. 

Additionally, we are pleased to provide scholarship assistance in support of the educational needs of children and dependents of food service workers within Glynn and McIntosh County.

Total Giving Since 2018

To date, we have issued more than 850 checks, totaling $300,000+ in emergency assistance to individuals representing more than 118 different restaurants throughout our Golden Isles community.

During the COVID pandemic, we rallied to provide more than $175,000 in emergency grant assistance to help sustain restaurant workers who were temporarily unable to provide basic financial support to their loved ones and dependents.
