CU System
Fund For Fallen Arizona Firefighters At $50,000
PHOENIX (7/9/13)--Arizona State CU, which lost six members and one former member in the Yarnell Hill Blaze that killed 19 firefighters last week, has collected roughly $50,000 in donations for the fallen firefighters' families, as of Friday.
 
Paul Stull, senior vice president of the Phoenix-based credit union, told Credit Union Magazine Monday that the amount far exceeds the $20,000 match that the credit union hand announced last week.
 
A caravan of 19 fallen firefighters made its way from Phoenix to Yarnell and to Prescott, where it arrived Sunday. The procession went past two Arizona State CU branches, Stull told the magazine.
 
Those branches will be closed for a few hours today--before, during and after the community memorial service.

Donations are ongoing and will be given to the Prescott Fire Department to distribute. For more information, use the link to read News Now's story, Arizona State CU Sets Up Fund For Fallen Firefighters.
