Contributions to 100 Club of Arizona help families of 19 firefighters killed in Yarnell Hill Fire

July 03, 2013

People and companies from across the country are donating to the families of the 19 firefighters killed battling the Yarnell Hill Fire.

Corporations like Motorola, the Arizona Cardinals and media personality Glen Beck have contributed thousands of dollars to the 100 Club of Arizona, an organization that provides financial and emotional support to the families of first-responders who are killed or injured in the line of duty.

Spokeswoman Ciara Franklin says the response in this case, has been different.

"The community always steps forward when we have a loss, but the magnitude of this loss has just magnified the support so much more," Frankin said.

Franklin says the 100 Club will remain in Yarnell and Prescott as long as it takes to help the families.
