How to Help During COVID-19: An Example of a Bar Owner

During this difficult time, it is essential to remain positive. For your daily dose of good news, Cook It would like to share with you a wonderful, feel-good story of hope and help during COVID-19. Our story begins a few weeks ago when a business owner in Georgia had a fantastic idea for helping her unemployed staff during the pandemic.

Jennifer Knox is the owner of The Sand Bar, located on Tybee Island, Georgia. Although she bought it six years ago, it has had an ongoing tradition of patrons pinning signed dollar bills to the ceiling and walls as mementos since the opening 15 years ago.

Recently, Knox decided to give her business a fresh new look, while simultaneously supporting her employees. With the help of volunteers, she was able to pull down $3,714 in bills from walls and donate that money to her bartenders and musicians.

Knox posted photos of the newly made-over bar with its clean walls and a new coat of paint on her Facebook page.

“We looked around, and we were like ‘we have money on the walls and time on our hands‘, and we just felt this sense of urgency to get these dollars down and into the hands of those who need it,” Knox said.

Tybee Island is one of Georgia’s most popular vacation destinations that depends on tourism to support its economy. Since the quarantine order, restaurants and businesses in the town, including The Sand Bar, have been shut. Knox expresses her hope that The Sand Bar will reopen its doors once this is all over.

I am an English major with a love of languages and fiction, and with an incurable travel bug. In my free time, I read fantasy, drink copious amounts of coffee, and like to go see movies. Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.

I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.

I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going
to a famous blogger if you are not already 😉 Cheers!

I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I
never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.
Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
net will be much more useful than ever before.

Having read this I believed it was really enlightening.
I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this content together.
I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both
reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worthwhile!
