It is a sad day in Houston with the loss of a 46-year-old firefighter Daniel Groover. Daniel was a 21-year veteran of the Houston fire Department and he perished while fighting a fire in Kingwood, Texas.
Our heart goes out to the Groover family.
This is the fifth firefighter who has perished in the line of duty in the greater Houston area in just over a year.
The importance of our first responders cannot be overstated. These men and women put their lives on the line, every day, to help Houston families in times of need.
One way that we can give back is to support the Houston 100 Club that is an organization founded to give support to families such as the Groover family.
I urge everyone to find out about the 100 Club and supported in one of the many levels of membership. The 100 Club honors our first responders by help providing necessary life-saving equipment and also providing benefits for the families of those who perished serving us.
An individual membership can be obtained for as little as $100, and the organization is a 501 (C)3 nonprofit so your contributions are tax deductible.
While the 100 Club cannot provide fully for the families, it is absolutely the least we can do for our community. Heroes like Daniel have given everything for us trying to make our communities safer for everyone.
You can learn about the 100 Club by going to their homepage. Joining the club is as easy as filling out an application and sending a check.
Please support the 100 club it was formed to support the families of the heroes from Houston like Daniel!
