What We Do
When a law enforcement officer or a firefighter in Genesee, Shiawassee or Lapeer County dies in the line of duty, a representative from the Hundred Club delivers a $10,000 check to his/her dependents within 24 hours of the incident. This check is intended to ease the burden of immediate expenses.
At the convenience of the surviving family members, the evaluation committee meets with the surviving spouse a month or so later to determine what the immediate financial obligations are. Each case is appraised on its individual merits to assure the best possible disbursement of funds to ease the economic burden on the family and assist them in a new life.
The Hundred Club makes the final determination on whether a benefit should be paid and to whom it will be made.
It is made clear to the family that this assistance is not a "charitable hand-out". Rather, we are simply repaying a debt on behalf of the entire community. The Hundred Club is looking out for those who have given their lives while they were looking out for us.
Since the Hundred Club of Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer Counties was founded, nearly $200,000 has been given to assist surviving families. That private money has made a substantial difference in a variety of ways. In some cases, we have been able to help with mortgage payments until the family could get back on their feet. We've helped with college tuition.
The Club also makes available vocational and career counseling, and professional psychiatric assistance for any member of the deceased's family.
Each child receives a $500 U.S. Savings Bond every Christmas until their 18th birthday.
Through its members and various committees, the Hundred Club of Genesee, Shiawassee and Lapeer Counties stays in touch with the families of the deceased and offers further assistance when needed.
