How It Began...In 1968, a group of concerned citizens joined together to form The Two Hundred Club of Union County to “recognize” the valiant efforts of police, firefighters and New Jersey State Troopers in Union County. The organization was founded to ensure that our uniformed protectors and their families are never ignored or forgotten, and to encourage them to do their best.
Over the past three decades, The Two Hundred Club of Union County has grown to become one of the strongest organizations of its type in New Jersey with more than 393 members. The Two Hundred Club provides financial assistance to families of Police and Firefighters who have given their lives in the line of duty. We also recognize the heroic achievements of these men and women each year at our Annual Valor Awards Luncheon held each Spring.
Our motto “Because We Care” signifies the purpose of The Two Hundred Club of Union County. Founded and chartered in 1968, The Two Hundred Club recognizes the achievements of our uniformed Police, Firefighters and State Troopers. Our non-profit organization consists of residents and business people in Union County and residents throughout New Jersey who care about the welfare of over 3,000 men and women who daily put their lives on the line for our protection.
We provide financial assistance to the widows and families of our uniformed protectors throughout the County who have given their lives in the line of duty. The Two Hundred Club has also initiated a scholarship program. Those programs are outlined below:
Awarded to the dependents of deceased officers and firefighters who gave their lives while in the line of duty.
Scholarship of Academic Excellence
Awarded to academically deserving sons and daughters of active uniformed officers and firefighters.
Grant for Continuing Education
Established to aid those uniformed officers and firefighters wishing to study advanced subjects pertaining to their public service careers.
The Two Hundred Club of Union County receives its income from the dues and continuing annual support of its members. The Two Hundred Club of Union County Officers and Board of Trustees meet on the Third Tuesday of every month except July and August.
