SAVANNAH, Ga. – In the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, communities across the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire continue to gather to show their support and gratitude for first responders.

On Sunday, the town of Bluffton gathered to honor its fire, police, and EMS first responders through “Bluffton Strong” which offered fellowship and food to all who needed a hot meal and a friendly conversation.

More than a hundred gathered at Oscar Frazier Park in near downtown Bluffton.

Kenneth Frazier says he was inspired to create the ‘Bluffton Strong’ event after seeing the damage caused by Hurricane Matthew.

He called on neighbors and members of the First Zion Missionary Baptist Church to help out.

As Sunday afternoon progress, a crowd gathered around tables and celebrated making through the week with conversation and southern food.

Frazier hopes to create more events like ‘Bluffton Strong’ to bring the ever growing community of Bluffton together, in both good times and bad.
