For 20 years, Gwen has been selling her delicious cakes to customers with all the profits going to help out families in need throughout the Triad.

Along with the profits from the cakes, the money put in the tip cup at the Grill also gets added to the collection, "People started putting money in the cup and asking me for what, and you know you have to use your gifts that God gives you, so I love to bake, so you know baking and blessing.  So I started baking and putting money in the drawer and people said Miss Gwen what can I do to help?" says Gwen.

According to Gwen the tip jar brings in about five to ten thousand dollars a year, money that her son, the owner of the Grill, is more than happy to give away, "It makes us feel good and some people we give to, a lot of them are anonymous and they really don't want to say nothing and they'll send us cards through the mail or a letter or pull us aside to say thank you."
