When a customer asked Tom Payne, owner of Tom's Print and Sign in Chino Valley, to make up some decals to honor the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died in the Yarnell Hill Fire on June 30, Payne crafted two designs, which he is offering for a donation.
"These are premium quality decals and will last a long time," Payne said.
He is bearing all the costs for the production of the decals and is donating 100 percent to the United Way, which has a combined account set up for families of the 19 fallen Hotshots and for Yarnell residents who are victims of the fire and have lost everything.
Payne's sister, Wendy McManigal, who works with Payne, said they have collected $1,807.77 in donations. To donate and receive a decal, call Payne at 928-636-4266 or visit the shop at 381 Commercial Way in Chino Valley.
