BMO Harris Bank today announced a $20,000 donation to support those affected by the wildfire in Yarnell, Arizona and surrounding areas. The funds will be split between the 100 Club of Arizona and the Yavapai County Community Foundation, two leading organizations whose work is critical during a tragedy like this.
“Words cannot express the sadness we feel for everyone impacted by this terrible loss of life and I’m certain our community will come together to do whatever it can to help those in need,” said BMO Harris Bank Arizona President, Steve Johnson. “We have a long history of supporting first responders because they’re the ones who often make the greatest sacrifices in protecting countless others. Their acts of bravery will never be forgotten.”
The 100 Club of Arizona, whose mission is to provide immediate financial assistance to families of first responders and public safety officers who are seriously injured or killed in the line of duty, has established a memorial fund specifically for the families of those killed in the Yarnell fire.
The Yavapai County Community Foundation has established a fund to aid in the long-term recovery efforts, including relief for displaced families and individuals, animal welfare, environmental needs, community clean-up, rebuilding and more.
BMO Harris Bank encourages other businesses and individuals to provide assistance with relief efforts. To donate, contact The 100 Club of Arizona at www.100club.org, or Yavapai County Community Foundation at azfoundation.org/yarnellfire.
