A new organization has been formed to provide financial and emotional support to families of local law enforcement officers who are killed in the line
The McLennan 100 Club is a citizen-based, nonprofit organization that raises funds to help pay funeral expenses, relieve mortgage or other debt, and
cover educational expenses for family members of law enforcement officers who die in the line of duty. Surviving spouses and dependents of all paid, full-time federal, state, and local law enforcement officers employed in McLennan County may receive benefits. This week’s tragic death of a
Killeen police officer reminds us of the risks faced by our law enforcement officers every day when they go to work.
McLennan 100 Club membership levels include Individual ($100), Corporate ($500), Founder ($1,000) and Lifetime Founder ($10,000); memberships are tax
deductible and members receive striking window decals to exhibit their support. More than $50,000 in cash and pledges has been raised by the local club since it began accepting memberships in December.
