that protects our heroes in the field

  • When your spouse is killed and you’re holding a newborn, all you can think about is: how am I going to keep going? How am I going to make house payments and car payments…or get groceries and health insurance? The 100 Club paid my mortgage in full, provided money for desperately needed repairs, and put funding in place to send my son to college. I will never have the words to describe my gratitude for what they’ve done.

  • I was 12 years old when I lost my dad. It was a very challenging and confusing time for me. I’d always seen The 100 Club’s stickers, but I never thought in a million years it would impact me personally. I don’t think everyone makes the connection that those donations help an individual. I wouldn’t have been able to go to law school without The 100 Club…they’ve changed the trajectory of my life 100%.

  • When I told my children that their daddy wasn’t going to live with us anymore, it was the worst day of my life. But The 100 Club turned a nightmare into a livable experience. They helped with the purchase of a new home for my children and me. They made my family debt-free. They were there when my husband was no longer able to provide for us.

  • Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the support my family has received from The 100 Club. It’s been a long 18 months since the Southwest Inn fire, but with all the changes in my world, I’m still working hard at my rehab, improving a little every day for my children and myself. I am truly blessed, and I will be forever grateful to The 100 Club and its supporters.

2019 OFFICER OF THE YEAR

Captain
Michael Mathes
Tri-County Fire Department

Enjoying his day off, Waller County Fire Marshal Captain Michael Mathes pulled his car up to his home, having just picked up some lunch for his wife. As he was getting out of his car, he heard a loud, staggering boom. Turning toward the noise, Mathes saw a car resting in the ditch just down the street from him – and saw that the car was starting to smoke. Without hesitation, Mathes jumped back into his own car and drove to the wreckage. As he exited his car and approached the smoking vehicle, he found that flames were already at the windshield and spreading quickly. He could also see that the female driver was unconscious. Mathes pulled furiously on the door handle, making several attempts before the door would open. He then released the woman’s seatbelt, wrapped his arms around her, and pulled her out, with flames growing ever closer. The woman suffered serious injuries from the crash and was transported via Life Flight for treatment. Captain Mathes, who is also a veteran and volunteer firefighter, displayed tremendous courage, putting his own life on the line in service of a complete stranger, and he is thanked for his bravery in service.
