The Wickenburg 100 Club concentrates on offering assistance to the first responders of the public sector who are injured or killed in the line of duty while serving and protecting the Wickenburg community. The financial assistance offered is to support the needs of the first responder or their family until benefits and/or additional assistance is given.
Requests will often come from the first responder’s supervisor though it is accepted by any person on behalf of the first responder and/or their family. Every request is put forth to the board of directors who will then vote to approve or deny the request. If approved, a minimum of $500 will be offered to the first responder and/or their family.
