Testimonials

"What this organization does is truly amazing. The financial and emotional support the 200 Club provides for families when they lose a spouse or parent is vital. Many people think that families are automatically taken care of when a first responder is killed or seriously injured in the line of duty, but that is not the case. Thankfully the 200 Club is here to provide a lifeline.”

“Generosity is not so much the giving as it is the giving of ones self. This comes with warm and sincere appreciation. Thank you.”
New York State, Fraternal Order of Police, Empire State Lodge
“Words can’t even express how touched we were to receive the gift of money for Thanksgiving. The tears would not stop flowing!! This has been a difficult year and we were so blessed to receive this. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For all you do for my son and family. I look forward to the day that my son can personally thank you for all you have done for him! ! I know that when he is old enough to understand everything that has taken place that he would want to meet you all.”

“After the loss of my husband, I didn’t know what to do or how to provide for my family. All my friends were telling me that the Lord will provide. Then, out of nowhere, came the people of the 200 Club with a large amount of money.”

“The 200 Club has made a major commitment to the local Law Enforcement community insofar as they will come to our aide during our darkest times. Club members and contributors are to be commended for their very tangible dedication to Law Enforcement. We are truly fortunate to have the 200 Club.”
Dan Flynn
Chief, Fire Department
“I want to tell you how much I appreciate your visit this past Thursday. Further, I want to thank you and the 200 Club for the very generous donation… The money provided will go a long way in assisting the family through a very difficult time. It is gratifying to know there are people, such as yourselves, who recognize the need to assist the families of fallen Law Enforcement Officers and Firefighters when they need it most. As someone who has lost a family member in law enforcement, you know the misery and heartbreak that comes with the loss of one of our men. I am grateful for your kindness and understanding… Once again, Thank You and extend my gratitude to all of those who are part of the 200 Club!”

“On behalf of the Jekyll Island Fire Department Emergency Volunteers, I would like to thank you for the rapid response that you gave us in our request for assistance for Captain Perry Rhoden of the Jekyll Island Fire Department. Never did I dream that an organization could come to the aid of a fallen brother so quickly. I anticipated that if anything could be done, that it would be months down the road, not just a couple of days. It is great to know that your organization exists to assist those who have dedicated their careers and given their lives to Public Safety. I made an announcement about your quick response to Captain Rhoden’s needs at the Georgia Firefighters Association and Georgia Association of Fire Chiefs annual convention held here on Jekyll Island in August. Perry returned home on August 26. Sadly, his physician has informed him that he would not be able to come back to his old job. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the quick assistance you have rendered to our comrade. We cannot sing your praises enough. Little did we think when we joined the 200 Club that one of our own would need your help. We will be increasing our membership level next year.”

“I cannot express my emotions strongly enough when I say how much it means to our family and how much the leaders of the 200 Club, Mark and Frances Dana, have done for us.”

Widow of Firefighter Mark Hummeldorf
“Please sponsor, attend 200 Club events and donate all you can. The 200 Club makes lifelong commitments to the families who have endured and survived these losses and are there ‘today, tomorrow and always’ but this ongoing care and support costs a lot of money.”
Michael Owens
Board Member & Supporter
“I wish I had never met the 200 Club, but I am glad I did. The reason I met them is that I lost the love of my life and my best friend, Brandi. The 200 Club saved my house and saved my family.”
Karl Stock
Widower of Lt. Brandi Stock
“Mark Dana, the Club’s President and CEO, attended Moe’s funeral and after the service he came up and gave me a hug and told us that the 200 Club would support my family. The following week I was called to the firehouse by the Assistant Chief, and Mark and Fran Dana promised that they would make sure we had the money to pay bills and be there to support us always, and they have been.

“The Brunswick Police Department wishes to express our deepest appreciation for your assistance during one of our darkest hours last Friday, April 18th. Our hearts are still heavy and we shall continue to mourn our HERO Police Officer Melvin Collins who made the ultimate sacrifice in a convenience store. We miss him, but are uplifted when we realized that our grief and concerns were shared by so many. We will never forget the kindness and generosity of the 200 Club. You came forth with a helping hand in our time of great need! The Collins family greatly needed this financial assistance. Again, thank you for your concern for Officer Collins’ family. Know that we shall never forget your kindness. We find comfort in knowing that you and others in our community stand behind law enforcement and grieve with us over the loss of Officer Collins. Your club does a wonderful work and may God richly bless you and your members.”

“On behalf of the Mayor, Council and staff of the City of Hardeeville I would like to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to you and all of the members of the 200 Club for your outpouring of love and generosity to the family of Cpl. Mark Jones. The men and woman that wear the uniform of the police and fire departments throughout the nation put their lives on the line to protect and serve the communities they work in. They do what many cannot. They give what most would not. They ask for nothing when we would ask for everything. They deserve more than any of us could ever give in return. The 200 Club stands as a beacon of hope and support in dark times for the public safety community. Your club has stepped up to the plate and made a commitment to the men and women that protect us with their very lives each day. I know first hand what your club is doing for Deanna and Mark’s children. I know you give not to be recognized or applauded. You give because you care and that means more than you will ever know. As I stood numb by the graveside service, listening to the echo of the twenty-one gun salute, fixated on the final notes of Amazing Grace played by the bagpipes, I wondered quietly who would be there for Mark’s family when time had passed but the pain had not? It was then that I was reassured that God would be there. He has made His provision real to Mark’s family and to his friends here at the City by the show of love and support by your club. For that we are eternally grateful. I pray that the Lord will bless the efforts of your club and the families that you support on His behalf. Thank you and God bless you all.”
