Firebox Initiative

A helping hand in the form of financial grants to those in our local Coastal Georgia hospitality and service industry family in need of emergency assistance as well as scholarship opportunities for qualifying applicants.

A Community Initiative

The Firebox Initiative Inc. was founded by restaurant people for restaurant people. Griffin Bufkin and Harrison Sapp know what it means to suffer through tough times. When their restaurant, Southern Soul Barbeque, burned down on March 27, 2010 they did not know how they would get through. They quickly found out that their friends in the community and in the restaurant business would lift them up in their time of need. They have never forgotten that feeling and it is what drives their desire to help others with the Firebox Initiative.

We help service industry employees who are in financial need because of an illness, accident or natural disaster.

We help provide local scholarship opportunities to qualified applicants. For questions about assistance email [email protected].

The FIREBOX INITIATIVE is a registered 501(c)(3)

All donations are tax deductible
100% of every dollar donated goes to emergency relief
