In a recent interview with FOX 31, McNeal discussed how the donations were made possible as a result of loyal customers and ongoing support from the brand. Eggs Up Grill has also donated more than 1,700 boxed meals to support hospital workers and first responders at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and Dougherty County EMS.
