The Firkins Family has a very fervent passion for helping others and shows this with their years of benefaction to many local schools including the Historic Manatee High School. Because of the passion and work ethic of Robert Firkins he was selected to receive the "Outstanding Alumnus Award" from Manatee High School at the Class of 2012 graduation ceremony.

During his speech at the graduation he told to the class of 2012 to go do great things and accomplish their goals, but to never forget where they came from. He stressed the importance of giving back to the community who made you who you are. These ideals are the vision of the Firkins' family.
