August 8, 2017 – The Arcadia Firefighters’ Association (AFFA) is spearheading fundraising efforts to provide aid for the families displaced by the fire at the Kenwood Apartments. All the proceeds will go to the nearly 40 residents affected by the fire which occurred in the 800 block of Fairview Avenue on the morning of August 3rd.
The AFFA has set up an account for the Fairview Fire Families Fundraiser and is accepting monetary donations via mail. Checks for the Fairview Fire Families can be made out to Arcadia Firefighters Relief Fund and mailed to Arcadia Fire Fighters Association, PO Box 661865, Arcadia, CA 91066. Donors can also give online via GoFundMe at https://www.gofundme.com/fairview-fire-families.
The Association will work with the American Red Cross to determine the displaced residents’ needs and use that information to decide how the money is distributed.
In addition, on August 14, Matt Denny’s Ale House Restaurant located at 45 E. Huntington Drive in Arcadia, will set aside 25 percent of all proceeds from 11 a.m. to closing for the families affected by the fire.
