Two Hundred Club Providing Immediate Financial Assistance, Support to Ansari Family
Wednesday, May 15th, 2019
The Two Hundred Club of the Coastal Empire is proud to be providing immediate financial assistance and support to the family of Sgt. Kelvin Ansari. Club President Mark Dana met with the Savannah Police Department and command staff on Sunday, working closely with both entities to assess the family’s immediate needs. The club is standing by, prepared and honored to meet with Sgt. Ansari’s family after the funeral service this weekend.
As is the case with all of the families the Two Hundred Club responds to following the untimely death of a law-enforcement officer, the Ansari family will be cared for, supported and looked after now and for the rest of their lives. In addition to immediate financial assistance, the club also provides fully paid college and all related expenses to each of Sgt. Ansari’s dependents, including his wife, if she so chooses. The Two Hundred Club also offers additional monetary support during the holidays and will send Mrs. Ansari flowers on Mother’s Day for all the years to come.
The Two Hundred Club has a long and proud history of providing significant and immediate financial relief to the families of fallen first responders. They’ve given over $2 million to those in need within the 20-county area they serve in Georgia and South Carolina. The club is entirely nonprofit, meaning they have no overhead and none of the board members or officers draw a salary. Every dollar donated to the club goes directly to help the families with whatever needs they might have, whether that’s mortgage payments, utility bills or funeral costs. That assistance continues strategically through the years to make up for some of the support they lost.
“The Two Hundred Club is unique in that we never, ever forget our families. We stay with them forever. The sacrifice they have made, their suffering, their loss never goes away, so neither do we,” Dana said. “When we respond to a family who has just endured a loss, that family is now OUR family. The Two Hundred Club will be with them when they need it, checking on them and supporting them infinitely. We love them and we want them to know they are not alone – not now, not ever.”
Dana encourages anyone who would like to help the Ansari family to donate directly to the Two Hundred Club. All proceeds go directly to the family and will continue to support them for years down the road.
