The 200 Club of Morris County announced today that it would award fifteen $5,000 scholarships to high school seniors who are family members of first responders or training to become first responders.

 

The nonprofit continues to support local and state police, fire, and EMS personnel who protect the families in Morris County. Since 1971, The 200 Club has given more than $5 million to first responder families, either in the form of death benefits and dependent awards when a first responder dies in the line of duty or college scholarships to their family members.

 

“Every day, our first responders leave their homes and risk their own lives to protect our families,” said Jim Rizzo, who is the president of The 200 Club of Morris County. “We believe we should stand up for their families. Our annual scholarship awards are part of the promise we make to those who care for us.”
