200 Club of Coastal Empire providing comfort to families of fallen first responders

Handmade afghans presented to widows

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The 200 Club of the Coastal Empire is providing comfort to the families of fallen first responders.

Three families received handmade crocheted afghans from Christel Pfister, whose son is a Chatham County sheriff’s deputy. The 200 Club says this token of appreciation is a way to remind the families of first responders that they are always in our thoughts.

Lisa Larson says gestures like these bring them closer together.

“The 200 Club, the people that are associated with it, other law enforcement, law enforcement family members, they really are a family other than our birth family," said Larson, who is the widow of Bryan County Deputy, Sgt. Michael Larson.

The afghans were presented to three widows Wednesday morning in Savannah.
