ABACUS Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical is proud to announce they have become a Business Lifetime Member of The 100 Club of Houston. The non-profit organization offers financial assistance to the dependents of firefighters and law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty by paying their debts and providing an education for their children.
"Abacus is proud to support The 100 Club," said Alan O'Neill, CEO of Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical in Houston. "In this day and age when our officers who put their lives on the line to protect the citizens of our great city and country seem to be under-appreciated, Abacus is proud to show its support by becoming a Business Lifetime Member of The 100 Club."
William Skeen, deputy executive director of The 100 Club said: "The 100 Club is proud of the support from Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning & Electrical for becoming our newest Business Lifetime Member. Through their membership, they support our missions of providing for the dependents of law enforcement officers and firefighters, purchasing life saving equipment and scholarships. Since 1953 individuals and businesses like Abacus have helped us to fulfill this critical mission."
The 100 club was initiated in 1953, when 100 men each gave $100 to be used to assist the families of Houston police officers killed in the line of duty. The effort put forth by these men has developed into more than a half-century of support for families of fallen law enforcement officers and firefighters in Houston and 17 surrounding counties as well as several statewide agencies. Today, The 100 Club of Houston has grown to more than 29,500 members.
