The 200 Club of Monmouth County received a $3,500 grant from Investors Foundation at Deal Country Club on Wednesday December 12th during the monthly board meeting. 

The grant will help the Club's mission of financially helping first responders and their families in Monmouth County after an injury or loss in the line of duty.

Kim Guadagno, 200 Club of Monmouth County President said, "We are profoundly grateful for the generosity of Investors Foundation. Supporting the law enforcement and first responders community is truly appreciated by the brave women and men who put their lives on the line for our safety and well-being each and every day."

Treasurer Benjamin Lucarelli added, "Many thanks to Investors Bank, a fine institution, and its Investors Foundation, for their generosity and assistance in the 200 Club of Monmouth County in fulfilling its mission."

"Each day, members of law enforcement and first responders act to protect the citizens of Monmouth County without thought for their own well-being." Investors Bank shares a sense of responsibility to these men and women- and their families. Although we hope they never need the assistance, we are proud to provide this grant for those who are seriously injured or who have paid the ultimate price for their bravery," said Investors Bank Chairman and CEO Kevin Cummings.
