PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A CBS 5 Pay It Forward phone bank raised $82,073 Monday night for the 100 Club of Arizona and the American Red Cross.

The 100 Club depends on donations so they can help families of our fallen firefighters and officers.

The phone bank helped those directly impacted by the Yarnell Hill Fire.

100 Club donations go to help the families of the fallen 19 members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

The Red Cross donations go to help those who have lost their homes or have been burned out by the fire.

Fifty residences in Yarnell have been destroyed by the lightning-caused fire.
