Since opening in 2019, StillFire Brewing has been dedicated to giving back to the local community. To help foster its charitable impact, the brewery launched The Find Your Fire Foundation in June 2021, with a goal to help create a more positive quality of life in Gwinnett County and beyond through philanthropy. We are committed to helping a variety of causes, with one of our main focuses being supporting families that have been effected by childhood cancer. Childhood cancer is heartbreaking, and we want to give to support families with medical treatments and other expenses, to fund research to help find a cure and to provide support for organizations that have lost family members to cancer and are supporting other students with scholarships.

The Meal Bridge
During the shutdowns over the coronavirus, people in the restaurant and healthcare industries were some of the most affected. The Meal Bridge was created to support both these groups.
