(Los Angeles, CA) November 16, 2009.
For the Southeast Thurston Fire and EMS,
Christmas came early this year thanks to JZ Knight.
Hailed by Time Magazine as the most celebrated of all current channellers, JZ Knight recently gave $10,000 to The Southeast Thurston Fire and EMS.
This very generous act of kindness was a way for JZ Knight to express her admiration and gratitude for the heroic efforts of the fireman. The fire department has always been very professional when they have been called out.
With the first $10,000, Chief Rita Hutcheson said, When I saw that check, I had to do a double take, I about choked.
JZ Knight is also very aware of the tough economic times and wanted to let the department know that she is in full support of the continuous efforts being made. The funds were used for the departments detector and battery program and for other public education and development projects.
In addition to the $10,000 JZ has now issued a statement saying that she is going to donate another $10,000 with a pledge to give over $100, 000 over eight months.
JZ said I so appreciate the professionalism of the fire dept and their immensely important good works.
