100 Club Heart of Texas Responds to Local Tragedy

100 Club Heart of Texas Responds to Local Tragedy Local 100 Club is working closely with Law Enforcement to meet immediate needs of Jones Family and Krumnow Family Falls County and McLennan County (October 12, 2019) – In keeping with 100 Club’s mission of assisting families of first responders killed and critically injured in the line of duty, the 100 Club Heart of Texas and their Board of Directors have set up for the community to directly contribute to the family of Falls County K-9 Deputy Matt Jones and Chief of Police Danny Krumnow of Riesel, Texas. All proceeds collected will be directed to these families. On Friday October 11, 2019, approximately 2:46PM, your 100 Club located in Waco, Texas was notified of a critical incident on Hwy 6 near Riesel. We learned that Chief of Police Danny Krumnow of Riesel Police Department was in critical condition and that our neighboring Sheriff’s Office in Falls County also suffered a line of duty death of K-9 Deputy Matt Jones in the same incident. This lead to extensive communications with Board Advisors, Board of Directors, and Community Leaders as we began the process of assessing immediate need of the Jones Family and Krumnow Family. We are providing three avenues in which our community can provide a non-taxable donation to assist these two families to help offset financial cost due to this tragedy: 1.
