100 Club: Helping Firefighters

The 100 Club was established in Houston, Texas in 1953. The organization began when 100 men, each contributing $100, wanted to help the families of Houston Police Officers who were killed in the line of duty. In October 2001, The 100 Club reached another milestone in its history by providing benefits to the dependents of Firefighters killed in the line of duty.

On Easter weekend, two Houston firefighters did not make it out of a burning home. The stories of Captain James Harlow and Firefighter Damien Hobbs can be found on a facebook page set up in their honor. Your donations of $99,500, collected on April 17th, went to help their families. KPRC was proud to team up with the 100 Club once again to make a difference. Our condolences go out to the Harlow and Hobbs’ families.
