It was a special day at Mission BBQ in Jacksonville as the restaurant gave back to the military community on Tuesday.

Mission BBQ awarded the Semper Fi Fund with a check for $49,302. The money came from funds raised by selling special American heroes cups at the restaurant.

"The Semper Fi Fund supports combat-wounded critically ill and catastrophically injured service members and we couldn't do the things that we do without great supporters like Mission BBQ, said Tanya Washington, Community Sevenths Coordinator for the Semper Fi Fund.

Mission BBQ has assisted the Semper Fi Fund before and have worked with the non profit since 2016.
