BUFFALO, N.Y. — Oxford Pennant, a neighbor to DC Theatricks, is showing its support for the Buffalo Fire Department this week.
The company announced Thursday that they will be donating all of their online profits this weekend to firefighter Jason Arno's family.
As of Monday night, the official total amount raised this weekend was $25,720.41.
They will route the donation to Arno’s family through the Yard Foundation, a 501c3 that helps firefighters in need.
The owners of Oxford Pennant released the following statement:
"Yesterday afternoon, we spoke with the Buffalo Fire Commissioner and received permission to run a fundraiser for Fireman Arno’s wife and daughter. On Saturday and Sunday at oxfordpennant.com, all profits from all sales will be donated to Jason Arno’s family. Our retail store in downtown Buffalo remains closed while the investigation continues.
Fireman Arno died protecting us and we are indebted to him forever."
The Oxford Pennant store in downtown Buffalo is three doors down from where the fatal fire took place.
The store will remain closed as the investigation continues.
