La Cañada Flintridge residents donated $50,000 to benefit emergency personell and social services agencies in the wake of the Station fire, according to a statement released Tuesday by the city.

Kevin Chun, director of administrative services, said the community mobilized quickly to thank the firefighters and law enforcement personnel who worked to protect the city.

The donations are being forwarded to the Captain Ted Hall and Firefighter Specialist Arnie Quinones Memorial Fund, fire and Sheriff’s equipment funds, the Wildland Firefighter Foundation, the Sheriff’s Relief Fund and the Fire Chaplain’s Benevolence Fund. Donations will also be made to the American Red Cross, San Gabriel Pomona Valley Chapter, and the Pasadena Humane Society. The majority of the funds will be distributed by Thanksgiving, according to Chun.

“The generosity of donations from our residents is indicative of the heartfelt thanks for those that kept our community safe,” Mayor Laura Olhasso said.
