The Florida coast was hammered by Hurricane Matthew but that has not stopped communities from rallying to recover from the damage. Residents of Flagler Beach continue to come together to repair the damage caused by the storm. Volunteers including Joe Mullins of Mullins Management and Entertainment, a company that owns commercial real estate across the Southeast and manages nonprofit events, have worked tirelessly to restore normalcy to the area.  

Team Rubicon is on the scene helping in many ways as well. “Team Rubicon pairs the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions to bring complement other resources in an impacted area,” said Mullins. Joe Mullins is from Augusta, Georgia and travels frequently between his two homes. Last week, Mullins purchased dinner on Wednesday night for the group at Oceanside Beach Bar and Grill. On Thursday night, Mullins supplied dinner for the volunteers at Martins Restaurant. On Friday night Mullins joined a group of 20 other volunteers for dinner at the Topez Hotel where most of damage on A1A was done.   

“We plan to assist in many other ways but it’s great seeing all these people come together. I am happy to help in this way. The work is very tiring for the volunteers and these local restaurants need our support during this time. Just so everyone knows, the restaurants are open and need the support of residents now more than ever.” said Mullins.

Joe Mullins Reaches Out to Flagler Beach Community to Help Repair Damage Done by Hurricane Matthew

Staff Report From Augusta CEO

Many areas were beaten by Hurricane Matthew as it roared up the East Coast. Residents of Flagler Beach came together this past weekend to repair the damage caused by the storm. Numerous volunteers including Joe Mullins of Mullins Management and Entertainment, a company that owns commercial real estate across the Southeast and manages nonprofit events, worked to clean the beach and reopen the area as soon as possible. 

“This community means the world to me and when I knew the damage was great in the area, I wanted to help.” Joe Mullins is from Augusta, Georgia and travels frequently between his two homes. Mullins purchased lunch for over 150 volunteers including residents, fireman, police and city workers from Golden Lion and Tortugas restaurants. “While my companies plan to help in many other ways, it was the least I could do as everyone sacrificed their time in the hot weather to reclaim our beach. I have loved this community for many years. It has been very good to me and holds precious memories for my family. I think it is so incredible to see so many come together.” 

According to the FlaglerLive.com, the “plan is to have at least the beach in the area of the boardwalk opened up soon, with as quick a repair to as many walk-overs as possible in the near future to progressively reopen further portions. It’s essential for the city’s economy and its sense of normalcy, even though big portions of A1A, which collapsed, will remain closed, forcing businesses along that stretch at the south end of town to try to survive by attracting customers through Central Avenue.” 

Mullins plans to continue to work with city officials to provide time and resources to clean the beach and assist local businesses that have suffered significant loss from the storm.
