When a tragedy occurs, the Hundred Club is there to offer assistance and resources to its beneficiary families.
We also want to provide sense of security to current police and firefighter families in Massachusetts so they know that should a tragic event occur, the Hundred Club will be there.
We extend benefits in both line-of-duty and active duty deaths.
