PRESCOTT, AZ - ABC15 promised to take action to make sure the money you donated to the families of the Granite Mountain Hotshots got to whom it was promised.
The "Prescott 19" were killed on Sunday, June 30 when a windblown wildfire overcame the small town of Yarnell.
ABC15 spoke by phone with the Phoenix and Prescott Firefighter Union Charities. They've raised $4.6 million for the families.
They confirmed Wednesday they will be giving out every cent of that money by splitting it evenly among all the families.
According to the charities, the latest those checks could go out would be January to give the families time to deal with tax issues
Five charity board members are handling how and when the money will be dispersed.
