Mayor Jimmy Sims has proclaimed the month of May as the Club of Southeast Texas Awareness Month in the City of Orange on Tuesday, May 10.  The proclamation was presented to Warren Claybar, who serves as president for the 100 Club. The 100 Club of Southeast Texas established May Awareness Month to inform and educate the public of the benefits and goals the club has established to help provide assistance to the spouses and dependent children of first responders in Jefferson, Hardin, and Orange counties when tragedy strikes.

The 100 Club is an organization of private citizens and businesses that provide financial and moral support to law enforcement officers and firefighters. The club’s primary focus is to aid the dependent spouses and children in the event that a police officer or firefighter is disabled or loses their life in the line of duty. In addition to financial and moral support, a special ceremony is held where an impressive bronze plaque is hung to honor the victim at the department that they served. 

You can support law enforcement and firefighters with your 100 Club Membership. The 100 Club of Southeast Texas is a 501 (c)(3) charity and all contributions are tax deductible.
