As a banker for the LAFD Foundation I became aware of struggles that the Los Angeles Fire Department face. Through volunteering at events and attending board member meetings I learned about challanges and shortages at local fire stations that I couldn't even imagine existed. The LAFD Foundation is able to address specific needs of local fire stations and assist stations with protecting the coomunity. My time will always be available for this cause.

The LAFD Foundation is an outstanding non-profit organization that has greatly assisted the Los Angeles Fire Department during these current budgetary times. As the Deputy Chief in charge of training for the Department we have been very fortunate to have the Foundation assist with our current Leadership program, recruitment projects, and other training programs. The Foundation's funding has allowed the Training Bureau to truly provide a higher level of training programs that is reflected in our overall professionalism as emergency service providers. Thank you again to the Foundation and all the contributing members for all that you do for the LAFD!

As coordinator of the Los Angeles Metro F.I.R.E Academy, I have personally witnessed the positive impact on lives of young at risk youth from south Los Angeles, Ths impact could not have been realized except for the support of the Los Angele Fire Foundation. There are countess stories I could share, but one in particular was when we were interviewing students for leadership roles in the academy. One student when asked why he should be considered for the role related this story: "One day after school, I arrived home a couple of minutes later than I was suppose to, my dad yelled at me and through me out of the house. I had no where to go, so as I was walking I found a card board box and went back near my friends house found a spot I thought would be safe and slept in the box. I awake the next day and went to school". This kid slept in a card board box and went to school each day until he was able to find a shelter. He now lives in a boarding home still with a vision to Graduate and be a leader. I want to thank the Los Angeles Fire Foundation for playing a part in instilling courage and discipline in this kids life.
