Bar Owner Takes $3,714 of Dollar Bills off Her Walls To Give To Employees Facing Hard Times
Bar owner Jennifer Knox knew those dollar bills could be more than decoration
Dollar bills have lined the walls and ceiling of the Sand Bar on Tybee Island, Georgia for more than 14 years.
People tack up a dollar bill to mark a moment, show they were there, and give them something to comeback to.
When the coronavirus lockdown forced the Sand Bar to close like so many businesses across the country, Knox saw an opportunity.
“We had money on the walls and time on our hands. It was the time to give back to my people,” she told Fox28.
The money will be split up between bartenders and musicians who have been out of work since the shut down.
Each employee should get about $600.
