Free meal for first responders who fought through the flood

Big Boy Q BBQ Owner Clay Hill Big Boy Q BBQ Owner Clay Hill

CAROLINA FOREST, SC (WMBF) - Our community would not be able to push through the flood without the help of our first responders and one local business, Big Boy Q, wants to do its part to simply say thanks with a free meal.

Just a few days ago, Big Boy Q BBQ, was also surrounded by water. The worst may be over for the restaurant, but for others the flood is still very much a reality which means first responders are still needed. That's why the focus for this restaurant is our law enforcement officers, firefighters, utility workers, SCDOT, news crews and those putting their lives on the line to make sure our community is safe.

The owner, Clay Hill, hopes these crucial members of our community will stop by Thursday, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., for a free BBQ Sandwich, fries, and drink.

The restaurant has only been open for two months and is already giving back.

"That's part of the recovery, is pulling the community together, we're trying to do our little part of pulling the community together,” Hill said. “Let's say thank-you to all these people who have been out there risking their lives to make sure yours is safe."

First responders can cash-in on their free meal at Big Boy Q, located at 4012 Postal Way in Carolina Forest.
