Community Bank of Texas presented the 100 Club of Southeast Texas with its first Survivors Benefit sponsorship Tuesday, Aug. 5, at a check presentation ceremony at the Community Bank of Texas Delaware location in Beaumont.

The $50,000 contribution will fund one full life benefit to the spouse and dependent children of a law enforcement officer or firefighter killed in the line of duty, said Zack Shelton, 100 Club of Southeast Texas president.

Since its inception, the 100 Club of Southeast Texas has stepped up to support the families of fallen brothers and sisters in law enforcement.


Firefighters and families from all across the nation amassed at Reliant Stadium June 5 to pay their respects and mourn the deaths of four Houston firefighters killed in a massive motel fire. Three of the firefighters were killed when the roof at Southwest Inn on U.S. Highway 59 collapsed, and a fourth died after being rushed to the hospital.
